Happy Solstice!

From here on out, the days will be getting longer!

Does anyone else find it strange to call the solstice the "First day of Winter"? If you ask me, the shortest day of the year ought to be the middle of winter, and likewise for the summer solstice in summer, n'est-ce pas? It makes no sense to me to wake up on the longest day of the year, know that the days will only grow shorter from there, and call it the beginning of summer.

In other news, all I want for Christmas this year is to freeze my okole off. Oh look! What luck!

We were looking at a forecast of pushing 100F in the shade on Sunday, it's now downgraded to 85F. Must be cuz our days are now getting shorter!
