Five days before winter solstice. Another winter storm bears down. Snow and ice promise a messy commute. But soon, the last glow of the shortest day will shine. Then the dark of the longest night will follow.

  1. Lovely, Frank. The good news is that after that winter solstice, the days slowly begin to get longer. And also, that Christmas lights and candles illuminate our dark nights here.
