Snow, Snow, Snow….

Sunrise ~ December 20, 2009

The sun rises over a snow covered Richmond, Va on a quiet Sunday morning before Christmas.

The Winter Solstice, the first day of winter is tomorrow, December 21st. Winter officially starts at 12:47pm on Monday.

Looks like winter arrived early this year. I hope it leaves a little early too.

The days begin to get longer starting this week. In the midst of all the snow, cold, and short days there is hope.

Spring is 3 months away beginning on March 20th at 1:32 pm.

In case you missed it, December 17th was the official celebration of the Roman feast, Saturnalia, to commemorate the dedication of the temple to the god Saturn, the god of agriculture, harvest, and justice.

  1. Conservative Republican Says:

    If there is global warming – how come it snowed?

    “Saturnalia?” That sounds like “orgy” to me!
