I remembering jogging at noon in Bremerhaven at this time of year. The long shadows and low light
reminded me of sunset. It must be just that much worse in much of Denmark. It is no wonder that all
us pagans took to celebrating the rebirth of the sun.
I also remember waking up to sunshine at 0300 hrs in June.

Now the light comes back... My winter solstice ride was 23 mi this year. Unseasonably warm weather
for Michigan this time of year. Have had some late 30's, low 40's.
The solstice has always marked a turning point for me in winter riding. I start getting fired up
about the riding season to come. In January, I look forward to the TOSRV signup about the middle of
the month and in February the DALMAC applications mail. Gets me through the cold and dark.

Not here :-( Next door to the Nut Mines in which I while away my daylight hours they are building a
big block of flats, cunningly positioned to block the last remaining window through which anything
other than bricks can be seen...
