We are now into the countdown to the Winter Solstice and then it’s Christmas.  Pitch dark at 6 a.m.  and then when I looked out at about 6:40 it was as if I was seeing the Northern Lights – a hint of yellow and green   along the horizon line.  Sunrise wasn’t due until 7:30.  Lovely.  A prelude to a clear and cold sunny day here in Seattle.
