The Slice

Please welcome the Winter Solstice

If your calendar says winter doesn't begin until tomorrow, that's because it is already Thursday in the Eastern Time Zone.

One way to note the arrival of the solstice in Spokane is to do a close, careful clipping of your toenails before turning in tonight. That's so your dry, split nails won't painfully snag the bed covers and jolt you out of a dream in which you were talking to Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson about Bloomsday.
