Today marks the Winter Solstice for 2009.  What this means for us in the Pacific Northwest is that the sun rises at 7:55 a.m. and sets at 4:20 p.m., which gives us just 8 hours, 25 minutes and yes, 15 seconds of daylight on this day.

The Winter Solstice is full of tradition and history dating back to ancient times.  I for one am glad to be back on the upswing intoColumbia Tower is glowing in the Sunset

the daylight for 2010 - leaving the darkness behind us for another year.

I took this photo last week.  What you see glowing is the Columbia Tower, downtown Seattle, 18 miles from where I am.  This building is 73 floors tall and has a fantastic views as you might imagine.  Membership to The Tower Club has its advantages. 

You do not have to be a member to enjoy the festivities, they are having a New Years Eve Party that is open to members and non-members alike.

Make your Winter Solstice a memorable one!

Julie

Hi Andrew, yes the dark does play tricks on the mind and it has been said that people up north do their/our share of hybernating. 

Hi Bob, yes it is time to dust off the snow shoes and head to the mountains.

Hi Gary, tomorrow we will enjoy an additional 25 seconds of daylight.  Yippee!
