THE DAYS ARE GETTING LONGER… FOR REAL!
In case you haven’t noticed… the days are getting longer… for real! Think I’m just wishful thinking? Well, you’re wrong! If you Google “Winter Solstice 2008” you will find that the shortest day of the Winter/Summer cycle was indeed December 21st. So, that means that the days will be getting progressively longer and longer between now and June 21st. Whoo hooo! I can almost feel that warm, late-night Spring air on my face right now.
Ok, maybe I’m getting a little ahead of myself but cut me some slack man… with the total crud weather we’ve been having here in Middle Tennessee, I’ll take anything I can get that will cast hope on the fact that the Dark Months will eventually come to an end.
But it’s more than hope. It’s a fact and I find great comfort in knowing that it won’t be all that long until temps are in the ’70’s and ’80’s, the sun is staying out until 8:30 or 9:00 at night and I’m riding ’til my heart is content. Ahhhh… I cant’ wait! Until then, I’ll keep riding as much as I can, keep my nose in the Cycle magazines and count the days until March 1st… the official end of the Dark Months!
Woo Hoo! Here’s to longer days and warmer temps! My hubby and I were just commenting on the same subject after we took our ride Saturday. We were later getting home than we planned, but we were still home before dark. I love looooong summer days! Bring it on!
