Happy Winter Solstice

Loved this Vox article with some cool facts about it.  One of the things I find most intriguing is that the sunset has already been getting later for a while now (though, the days, of course have still been getting shorter).  The further south you go, the greater the lag between earliest sunset and latest sunrise.

Works for me, I’ve been getting later sunsets for about 2 weeks.  The later the sunset, the later I can get home from work and still walk my dog without a flashlight.  And during winter I pretty much always sleep through the sunrise no matter how late it is.
