Winter Solstice - Northern Hemisphere

Today is the shortest day of the year for those of us in the northern hemisphere.  I know it is technically considered the beginning of winter but for me it signals that we are more then half way through winter.  You see after today the days get longer, with more sunlight hours, leading up to the summer solstice, when the entire process reverses.  So for me the long dark of winter is slowly lifting as the light returns. 

Yes I know we still have months of cold yet to come.  Our solstice this year, in Indiana, is being commemorated with a severe winter storm that threatens to leave us with up to 2 feet (12 inches) of snow when it ends tomorrow.  Once the snow ends the temperatures are expected to dive with a low of -6 F on Saturday, Christmas morning.

The picture is taken from the Newgrange & Knowth Megalithic Passage Tombs site. Give them a visit to see some very cool pictures.
