winter solstice at the beach

This is NOT the beach; it is Rochester, New York. Here, the first day of winter dawned clear, bright and beautiful. It stayed that way until about 3 o'clock when it began to cloud up and get very muggy. Fortunately I got my laundry done and hung out before the moisture crept back into the atmosphere. Now, at 7 PM, it is very humid and hot. Unfortunately our ceiling fans are not working; fans in the living room and our bedroom have been taken down for eventual (after Christmas) replacement. There is only a slight breeze to keep us cool and semi-dry. It's been so warm that I packed away the jersey sheets ~ we used them all season last year ~ and am opting for cotton only. But tomorrow is another day and, as we say here, each day is different, at least as far as the weather goes.

Tomorrow is tiangues, and I think the shopping group will stop at La Jacaranda for bean tacos and beer, round about 11 AM. A favorite tradition.

30 days until 1/20/2009: End of an Error
