(UPDATE: Thank you everyone for pointing out my error; it's not "solstace", I get it! The spell checker doesn't function in the title field I guess)
First day of Winter, so CT Joyce & I took in a little early morning cross-country skiing. For the shortest day of the year, it was nice and sunny. The snow did soften up a bit towards late morning, so we made our first ski outing of the season a relatively brief one.
BTW this is at Lake Wintergreen in Hamden. "Local" and "free" make it a fine choice!
