The sun rose in Indianapolis today at 8:02AM, and it will slip back below the horizon at 5:23PM. It's the shortest day of the year.
Tonight, Night Wolf starts to vomit Sun Maiden back out and the days grow longer again. It'll be a while before it feels like it, though.
My personal benchmark that the days are getting longer is when I no longer have to turn the dining room lights on for Rannie's evening feeding, and that won't be until about the first of February. We are in the months of the Long Dark Kibble-Time of the Soul.
