Winter is Coming

Meteorological winter starts this week on December 1. Astronomical winter will follow shortly at the solstice, which is on December 21st this year.

The solstice is the moment when the earth’s axis is at maximum tilt relative to the sun; it and can vary by a few days from year to year. That’s why there are two ways to note the beginning of winter. Meteorologists need fixed dates to make comparisons — a neat December, January, and February. Either way you measure it, it is time to get your warm clothes on and enjoy. Click on the pictures to enlarge.

Here's a thought about solstices from Gary Kukav, spiritualist and author: 

"Each solstice is a domain of experience unto itself. At the summer solstice all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. At the winter solstice the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow."

Snow is also coming soon.
