Almost Solstice

It's in the hardwiring, I say. I am quite aware that tomorrow morning is the Winter Solstice, and have been counting down for a couple days. It's rather like counting down for New Year's, but more significant. Those were the major holidays for my ancestors, summer and winter solstice.

It will probably be raining tomorrow morning, so I won't be able to watch the sun come up behind the center post of the front of my garage, but I will know where it is, and mark it mentally. I still find it amusing that this alignment works out so well, that, when viewed from the back of the house, the solstice sunrise is nicely markered.
