At 9:11 AM PST, on December 21, the earth’s North Pole was tipped at a 23 degree angle away from the sun. Turns out that petty little piece of information carries quiet a bit of weight. That moment, 9:11, was the winter solstice — the cold season’s welcome party. December 21 was the Northern Hemisphere’s shortest day of 2013 and that’s good news for everyone who does not like caves, crevices, grottos or darkness in general. It’s great news for everyone who enjoys the sun, light, happiness and — perhaps most importantly — surfing after work. Now can the West Coast finally get a taste of some of that NW swell energy? It’s practically summer already.

    From Groundhog Day
    When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn’t imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.
