Solstice shadows

Today is the winter solstice, which in our country marks the beginning of winter (ha! - they haven't visited Amherst, NH this year). In China, it actually marks the middle of winter, which seems about right to me.

The sun is at its lowest point in the sky, hence these long shadows on the snow. And of course this is the shortest day of the year. So that means we should be heading in the direction of Spring tomorrow, right? Call me when we get there. I'm going to curl up by the fire in the mean-time.
