One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Sunrise January 23, 2011 in Adelphi Maryland
It was cold this morning, 16F, when I took this picture at 7:30. Officially the sun rose at 7:21 which, though a marginal improvement at best over 7:27, nevertheless represents a gain of day length. Any gain is better than slippage. Today will be 39 minutes longer than December 21 and tonight 39 minutes shorter. Starting Monday next we'll be adding two full minutes of daylight every day. That's a good thing.
