Winter Solstice Memories–Yearning for the Sun

On the eve of the Winter Solstice 2013 on the restored Wingra Oak Savanna.

December 21, 2014–There are plenty of clouds–but no sunshine–for Wisconsinites today,  so we will have to satisfy our solar desires with a view from last year’s Winter Solstice .

The days have been cloudy for most of December in Wisconsin and the upper Midwest.  Clouds have obscured the sun for 10 straight days (the December average for cloudy days in Madison is 15) and have hung over the state and much of the Midwest for most of December.

It will be the Winter Solstice in a few hours with zero chance of seeing the sun this afternoon–or for the next several days, for that matter–so enjoy this little view of last year’s Winter Solstice sun.
