Happy day after Solstice.

We know this sounds weird, but yesterday was summer solstice, not today...seems to happen every once in awhile on the 20th as opposed to the 21st, with the next one coming in 2012.

An any rate, 23:59 UTC was the point of furthest northward tilt of the axis...or 2:59 pm AKDT which, coincidentally, was the exact time that Us and Jools were knockin' the holy crap out of some king salmon.

5 for the day...beautiful sunshine, flat calm, way away from the hustle and bustle of town - a great way to spend solstice afternoon.

Now we begin the journey back into the dark tunnel of winter. Today the sun will be up for exactly 3 fewer seconds than yesterday. Already the noose is tightening.
