Happy Winter Solstice!

For those of us who run our systems on solar power (and the human body is one) it is a happy day – knowing that while today is the shortest day/longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere, it also signals that beginning tomorrow, our days will get longer. Today, if I want to wash clothes, I must run the genie, also charging the discharged batteries.

As for weather, I have received .37″ as of 8 am. My SLO weather caster has this to say: “The sun will reach its southernmost point of the year this evening and usher in winter at 8:48 p.m. As if on cue, a weak cold front will gradually move southward and produce cloudy skies and light
rain later this morning into Tuesday afternoon throughout the
Central Coast. Snow levels with the mild system will remain above
6,000 feet today before rising to around 7,000 feet Tuesday.”

I am hoping Wednesday is the break in the rain I need to go get my yearly blood work done. Keep that thought!
