It's today!

Happy Solstice!





This year's winter Solstice is brought to you by the Claude Bourbonnais Winter Car Control driving school, which will introduce you to ice rally driving on a frozen lake in Quebec. Not too far from here, actually. Hmm...

Apparently this was from last year, but I did not see it, although I thought it was cool:



I find it curious that today is the first day of winter, yet the warmest day we have had in a month.

Weird how days get longer and colder. Huh.

The radio played a song about highway travel over the holidays, I missed the title and artist. There were verses about truckers and military and the police at accidents.

But the last line was "there's nothing as dangerous as Texans on ice."
