According to the US Naval Observatory, winter officially starts at 7:22pm tonight. The obsessiveskier is celebrating in his own way.
During my celebration this dark morning I learned from wikipedia that our winter solstice falls somewhere between yesterday and Sunday. Check out this graphic and see if you can figure it out:
In my opinion, the coolest thing about this time of year is that the snow doesn't melt as fast.
In other news:
Today is Anna & Sophie's last day of school before the winter break. WOOHOO!
Tonight is Anna's 10th Birthday Party. WOOHOO!
Tomorrow were planning to ski A-Basin. WOOHOO!
And on top of all that, snow is in the forecast.
If that doesn't call for a little spontaneous blog-style worship, I don't know what does!
Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him all creatures here below,
Praise Him above ye heavenly host,
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.
