On another note, yesterday I mentioned that since the solstice was after sunset. I was asked why not do it at noon? Ah, well for one there was no snow to put the stake where I wanted, you see I want to do this in my backyard and have these nice flat marker stones. The ground is frozen solid too and while I thought about driving a piece of iron rod into the ground, we also were getting flooding rain. Yeah, kind of takes the fun out of it; besides I want to mark the exact point AT the moment of the solstice. So the plan now is to drive a stake into the ground next spring – it’s the only way to do it properly.
