Winter solstice arrived ... looking forward to spring
From The Sun's print editions:
Baltimore Sun reporter Candus Thomson offers this guest post:
"A day without sunshine is like, you know, night," Steve Martin once said.
The winter solstice arrived in Baltimore at 12:30 a.m. At 9 hours, 24 minutes and 1 second, it is the shortest day of the year.
If you think it’s bad here, just remember those folks above a latitude of 66.5 degrees north. They’ll be in the dark all day.
But cheer up, the sun has already booked its return flight. Days will get longer and on March 20 at 1:14 a.m, the vernal equinox will arrive.
