It’s the winter solstice – the official start of winter, but don’t tell that to folks here in St. Louis who’ve been dealing with nasty winter weather for over a month. And darned sure don’t tell that to the folks in Denver who got two feet of snow yesterday.
Whether or not you have winter weather where you are doesn’t matter as much as the one thing we all have in common today: darkness. It’s the shortest day of the year and, just so your seasonal depression doesn’t kick in automatically, tomorrow starts the days lengthening process that’ll continue for the next six months. So, enjoy the dark while you have it!
