Today is the winter solstice when the sun reaches its northern most point from the equator.
It’s our shortest day and longest night.
Tomorrow we’ll have about 1 second more of daylight than we had today.
Alas that doesn’t mean the worst of winter is behind us.
Just as we often get more summer-like weather in late January and February than in December and early January, it’s common to get more wintry weather after the shortest day than before it.
But, as Shelley observed: If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?
