It’s “that“ time of year.

Dark, short days.

Cold, wind, and, this year, torrential rain.

A record-setting summer of rain has a contender in late fall. And the wind makes it all the more wintery.

If it didn’t blow away this past weekend, it easily could have floated off.

But the end of at least some of it is coming.

In three weeks — 21 days — the days will start to lengthen. It won’t be noticeable at first, but by the second week in January, the darkness will begin to recede and obviously.

There is light at what appears presently to be an awfully dark tunnel. But the light is coming.
