Welcome Yule!

MY Favorite Day of the Year.

Days start to get Longer.

The Winter Solstice, the SHORTEST DAY of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Welcome Yule!


As I do most years I give YOU, in peace,
Dona Nobis Pacem‘ (Grant us peace)
for the Winter Solstice.

Today
10 hours and 48 minutes of Daylight.


IF you live in New Hampshire I hope (I really do) that this has NOT escaped you.

It is so obvious and, moreover, WONDERFUL.

It is still light at 5:30 in the evening. Heaven!

I love it. I am a Sun Worshipper as my TAN testifies.

Enjoy.

It will keep on getting better until that DREADED, horrible day in June when winter turns the corner!

Welcome Yule!

MY Favorite Day of the Year.

Days start to get Longer.

The Winter Solstice, the SHORTEST DAY of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Evenings have ALREADY started to get longer — as of December 12, 2019!

It is sunrise that continues to be tardy.

Notice that sunrise does NOT get earlier following the Solstice!

If anything it continues to get later and later.

It is LATER SUNSETS that are making the daylight longer.

Sunrise does not start getting earlier until January.

Welcome Yule!


In the spirit of Revels I give YOU, in peace,
Dona Nobis Pacem‘ (Grant us peace)
for the Winter Solstice.

Winter Turns The Corner In New Hampshire TODAY, January 7, 2018 — Sunrise FINALLY Getting Earlier.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE & study.


That we had the 2017 Winter Solstice on December 21 did NOT mean that sunrise started to get earlier — and sunsets later.

At our latitudes sunrise getting earlier and sunset getting later is NOT symmetric.

Following the Solstice (as the bottom chart shows) sunsets got later, BUT the sunrises kept getting later! It was the later sunsets that made sure that the days got, just, shorter.

But, as of TODAY, January 7, 2018 all that changes.

Sunrises get earlier … and earlier. Within 15 days, sunrise will be a full 7-minutes earlier. The days would be 25 minutes longer. Yes, 25-minutes longer.

Enjoy.

We are turning the corner and next week will be warm.

Kind of sad. Another year bites the dust — and what have I got to show for it, other than being an year older? YIKES!

The second picture was taken at 4:14pm. Sunset for December 31, 2017, in this neck of the woods, was slated for 4:20pm. So, 6 minutes ahead. While evenings are getting longer, mornings continue to be earlier and earlier despite this being a full 10-days after the Winter Solstice. But, thanks to the longer evenings days are LONGER! Mornings turn the corner on January 8, 2018.

Just for the record, compared to the 2016 Solstice, which was also on December 21, we have 3 extra seconds of DAYLIGHT. Wow. Rejoice.

Welcome Yule!

My FAVORITE day of the year.

I sulk during the Summer Solstice — because I understand, appreciate and live by what it all means.

As of the Summer Solstice days start getting SHORTER, immediately, until the Winter Solstice.

But, as of the Winter Solstice, tomorrow, days start getting LONGER. Rejoice.

So, may I be the first to wish you a Very Merry Winter Solstice.

Welcome Yule!
