Currently re-reading Storm Front by Jim Butcher
Today's Yule, aka the Winter Solstice, aka the first day of winter.
Was anyone able to see the lunar eclipse early this morning? Normally, our backyard would have afforded a perfect view (North America had prime seats), but the #*$@ Houston cloud cover didn't cooperate.
Wonder Dog and I checked several times between 1:30 AM and 2:35 AM. Nope, nothing but city light pollution reflected off low, scudding cumuli. *sigh* We finally gave up and crawled into our respective beds.
It's not often I wish for a cold front. But if the last line of winter storms had drifted farther south than Huntsville on Sunday, last night would have had crystal clear skies. Gotta love the funky orange color reflected light from Earth gives our favorite satellite.
Granted the coldest weather here in North America is yet to come, but on the plus side, our days will start getting longer again. Enjoy the Yule spirit!
