What a difference a year can make..........another beautiful, warmish, blue-sky and sunshiney day here. Last year, and for some years before, this time of year meant snow, snow and minus thirty or colder. And, though it is pretty hereabouts and the weather is most welcome in December - especially today on the Solstice itself - 'tis hard not to miss the sheer beauty of a winter in northern Sweden where a white Xmas is pretty much guaranteed!
From all of us here in the Sierra Nevada , (J back yesterday having retired on 20th) whatever your poison, or thoughts, have a good 'un and don't forget to over-indulge like mad! A pictorial greeting to you all:
