Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

Happy Solstice!

Yes, today is the first day of winter - the Winter Solstice. Shortest day of the year. Seattle's sunrise was at 7:54am and sunset will be at 4:21pm. A mere 8 hours and 33 minutes of daylight today (feel free to correct my math if it's wrong...).

And what a beautiful day it's been! It was raining this morning, but now it's blue skies and sunshine. A nice 48 degrees. There was a rainbow on my drive to work. I took it as a good sign.

And tonight is our departmental Winter Gathering. I have already decided that I will only drink diet coke, so as to avoid a repeat of last year's Winter Gathering. And I have to work tomorrow, so there's more incentive to not overdo it this year.
