Winter Solstice

"A full moon hangs high in the chilly sky,
All say it's the same everywhere, round and bright.
But how can one be sure thousands of miles away
Wind and perhaps rain may not be marring the night?"

Li Qiao,


  1. How are you faring in this miserable weather that the West Coast is experiencing? No solstice for me, it was too cloudy. I didn't even try to stay up for it.

  2. We are not getting the rain California is troubled with. We deal with big rain fall pretty well, our soil is good for that.

    We had a good soaking the weekend of the 10th, but since then are back to the normal perhaps it is raining , perhaps not...wait 5 minutes

    It will be like this for quite some time..

    Persistent gray overcast skies with a blue day thrown in.

    Though January , it is said, is supposed to be La Nina rough this year,

    we will see!

  3. Nice photo, Marti. The good thing about the solstice is that the days are now getting longer and we can at least start dreaming of spring.
