Today is Winter Soltice time, 3:33 PM to be more accurate. The BAD news is that today is the FIRST day of Winter, so we have 3 months of winter to get through before Spring gets here. The GOOD news is that is the SHORTEST day of the year in terms of day light, so for the next 6 months the days will be getting LONGER each day until the first day of Summer gets here June 22nd. Sun set at around 4:30 stinks and COLD weather is not much fun. But at least it will be getting beter before too long I hope.
