Solstice Sunrise

Today is the Winter Solstice. The first day of winter and the shortest day of the year. (Even shorter when cloud mountains obscure the first rays of sunrise.)

The good news is that the days start getting longer now (although it really isn't all that noticeable right away). The bad news is that the first day of winter is also the first day of a very cold streak descending on Chicago.

It does look beautiful but a sign of a cold snap.
