I am totally confused (what's new!!) - the Mail said the 21st was winter solstice, I always understood 21/12 & 21/6 to be the shortest and longest days, yet on North West News last night the weather girls said it is today!

A beautiful, mild day after early morning drizzle.  Glass risen to 29.8.

Always as I understood it as a general rule as well Moh, however because we use a rounded up year of 365 days instead of the actual 365.25 days that it takes the Earth to orbit the Sun, we end up with a 6 hour discrepancy each year which after a number of years produces the shift of date. December 22nd this year Moh but normal service will be resumed at a later date.

We have leap years to keep it all tidy for our meagre life cycles but the universe runs on its own clock.

Guardian: When is the Winter Solstice?

Whichever day is the winter solstice, my roses are in flower and have new buds too!

Nice day here as well, sun in afternoon when I went to bed. Ian, thanks for the clarification. I must have heard someone quoting the scientifically correct date. Whetever, they are lengthening today!

Glass falling again, just below 29". Mild and calm outside and not raining, that'll do!

That's strange - no I don't mean your activities, Maz, but the fact that your post above (as I read it now) says "5000 posts" under your name - because your post in the `Rental purchase' thread says the same and I've just written congratulations there! I wonder how you can have two 5000th posts?

Tiz, the count changes on all posts at the same time as it's directly related to the poster.

Wet start to early morning walk but stopped raining for a while. It's started again......

Gloomy damp day with occasional drizzle. Still, could have been far worse! Far better travelling conditions this year for people heading for Xmas dinner with the rellies!

Glass risen to almost 29.4" Colder feel outside and dry at the moment.

Xmas Day is damp, windy and mild with a hint of rain on the wind. Glass is down slightly at 29.2. Wet and windy is my best guess.
