January not January

Half moon rising
Northern blue skies with
fog in the South
Dark clouded front moving east
and the birds are scrounging.
Feels more like spring
than the middle of winter.

Oh December.

Oh December.

You are trying to look like February,

trying to keep me down,

but I won’t let you.

Winter’s Last Gasp

A winter’s morning snow

that will be gone in just a few hours.

Winter Solstice

Usually the first day of winter is December 21st. This year it is today, the 22nd. I anxiously await the first day of winter every year because from here on out, the shortest day of the year, the sun sets just a little later each day and spring cannot be far behind.

The photo above was taken during this same week in 2010. For more information on the Solstice go to the Old Farmer’s Almanac or celebrate the solstice later today on Belle Island.

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.
