Saturday, December 22, 2018: 
The shortest day/longest night of the year.  Sunrise finally came at 7:58 am.  This was after a 4:33 pm sunset the night before. 
Only 8 hours and 35 minutes of daylight with a long 15 hours and 25 minutes of darkness.
This is also the official beginning of winter.  Well, winter starts earlier than that in Brainerd, Minnesota!
Daylight brought people out for a walk with their dog.
Lake ice is mostly safe for foot traffic, but not yet thick enough for vehicles in many places.

Quote of the day:    I'll snuggle in with this blog for the winter.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
