Sunday, December 21, 2019:   The longest night of the year started with sunset at 4:33 pm on Saturday. 
Sunrise on Sunday was at 7:28 am.  That's 14 hours and 55 minutes of darkness!  Only 9 hours and 5 minues of light. 
The Marine Corps League was out a few days later gathering donations to fund the Toys for Kids program.
There is a statue at the Brainerd Public Library depicting book reading.  Not a bad thing, especially at night in the winter.
Paula spent time outdoors, in the short daylight hours, getting rosy cheeks and snow on her hair.  That's Paula

Quote of the day:    Yes, this is a Minnesota winter.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
