Winter Solstice Sun

Tuesday 24 December, 2013 by Uncle Spike

Northern Hemisphere, 21st December, Winter Solstice… so the shortest day of the year, and our ‘mid-winter’.

We tend to have ‘winter’ is two lumps really; one in late November/early December, and then another in mid-late January. We don’t do snow, not this far south, nor do we have ice – perhaps just a bit on pools of water for perhaps 3-4 nights in a row. Our speciality are heavy storms, cold winds off that come howling off the mountains and some rather wicked electrical storms.

But not right now.

We are currently in one of our high pressure ‘nice winter’ bits. Every day is bright, mostly sunny and although close to freezing at night, warms up pleasantly by mid morning.

On Saturday, mid-winter’s day, we took ourselves off out for a family breakfast and then for ‘walkies’. It was not ‘hot’, but 18c (or 65F in old money) was pretty acceptable al round.

Bring it on….!

    Sounds wonderful! I’m in a snowy, cold place where our temperature today is currently -14 C (7F) and it’s a snow covered winter wonderland. Our winter solstice was pretty much the same although not as cold. It really isn’t too bad but by January, I want the nice warm weather back!
