This morning the temperature outside was -24C (-11F). During the winter that is the price we often have to pay for clear skies. It means a lot of wood in the stove and looking like the Michelin Man after putting on all the coats, hats, and boots.
I took this photo at 8:30 this morning, that’s an half an hour after the official sunrise, so you can see that the sun is still pretty low on the horizon. The arc of the sun’s path during the winter is pretty low. The thing that keeps me going this time of year is the realization that the winter solstice is only 17 days away and even though that is the official start of winter, at least I will know that the days will be starting to get longer.
