A Cold Winter Solstice

¬†Winter Solstice has arrived – the shortest day of the year in daylight hours. Even though winter has just begun and the hardest weather is yet to come, there is consolation in the fact that each day is getting a bit longer. Of course the longer and shorter days don’t matter as much as one […]
