Fairbanks gets ready for its Winter Solstice

Tomorrow in Fairbanks: day length only 3 hours and 45 minutes.  They lose a minute from today.  As do we here in upstate NY.

The webcam at the University of Alaska shows a snowy landscape, no sun visible today.  And, you can be 100% certain that Fairbanks will have a White Christmas.  Global warming or no global warming.

So, like all good cities should do, Fairbanks makes the most of their winter solstice with a celebration.

But for tomorrow, here are the official statistics.  As much as the extreme swings of day and night fascinate me, I'm glad this isn't here.

DECEMBER 17 2009..........SUNRISE  1056 AM AKST   SUNSET  241 PM AKST
