Winter Solstice

Today on the winter solstice we had an unusual visitor
in our home.
(you can see her at the top of the photo in the center)
So unexpected for we live in Maine.
Here is a closer look...

Happy Winter Solstice and the return of more light.

A second after I posted the above butterfly around 3 o'clock
this afternoon, the power went off!
We had been in the midst of a dramatic rain and wind storm today
the power went off for 4 hours on the shortest and darkest day of the year!

To my surprise, when I looked out of the window between 4:30 and  5 pm.
I noticed light...
the rain had stopped and there was a glowing light on the horizon.
