You wouldn’t know if by looking at the brown ground outside, but the astronomical start of winter arrives tonight.
The winter solstice will occur at 11:30 p.m., marking the shortest daylight period of the year for locations in the northern hemisphere, the National Weather Service says.
After today, the daylight period will increase each day until reaching its maximum again at the summer solstice in June.
Usually this time of year we are moaning about all the snow and cold, but so far it's been very pleasant and we've accomplished a lot that we couldn't have done during a normal winter.
We'll see what happens in January.
