Even though it's still officially fall, it feels like winter. We got dumped on yesterday, and we are still digging out. Even better, we are getting more snow later today. I know it's only December, but I'm sick of it already.

Even worse, except for some special cases, I haven't got my camera out much. Between the snow and the shortened days, it's been hard. Hopefully soon, when the days start getting longer, things will change.

The photo is of my neighbor digging out his driveway yesterday at noon. I had tried to get out of the house to meet some friends for lunch, but got stuck. I ended up digging myself out also instead.

For those that care, the winter equinox is tomorrow, December 21st at 12:04 UTC. The chart I looked this up in didn't say if it was a.m. or p.m., so I really can't say if it is 8:04 local time in the morning or in the evening. Oh well, I guess it really doesn't matter.

I hope you've had less snow then we have and if not, that you've digged yourself out.

It would be PM because UTC is formated in a 24 hour format. Noon would be 12:00 and midnight would be 24:00
