Last night around 12 o’clock we got a dusting of snow. The first snow of the season, appropriate for today. This is the winter solstice, the day when the earth, sun and the core of our galaxy form a straight line, and the last day on the Mayan calendar. The day that folks have been hyping for the past few years.
Are you ready? Here is what my (non-Mayan) calendar recommended that we do before the big day. Now that it’s here, hurry up! Quote:
“Rest up, drink plenty of fluids. Pick out your clothes carefully – you may be wearing them for quite some time. Also, set up your coffee machine – you’d hate to be fumbling with beans and grinders when Armageddon comes.”
I’ll finish by sharing the picture Bing.com posted this morning, of three male cardinals (the feathered kind). Leive and I have long had a thing for those birds, at least since we rescued a female in January 2006.
