At 3:46 p.m. Tuesday Dec. 22, 2015, we marched into the longest night and shortest day of the year.
I marked the winter solstice in Longbranch slowly making my way up the highway this morning on some of the sleekest patches of road so far this year.
“Units are responding to 2 vehicle rollover collisions on SR302 near 128th Street KPN,” read a post on the Key Peninsula Fire Department Facebook page early this morning. “Both vehicle crashes are non-injury. Please drive slow and expect icy conditions.”
It has also been one of the wettest December in 70 years, with 10.03 inches of precipitation. This has been the third wettest December on record in 70 years, and we still have 9 days left in the month.
According to the weather super geek Cliff Mass, SeaTac has a very good chance of breaking the all-time record of 11.85 inches set in 1979.
You know what I’m thinking?
More like singing, really.
I am dreaming of a white Christmas.
Merry Christmas Longbranch.
