Did you see the moon last night? The biggest and brightest of 2010. The Farmer’s Almanac has a list of Native American full moon names, that is, for the Northeast. The arctic chill is here for the next few days.
Some of our neighbors are struggling to keep warm and emergency shelters are open.
February 2nd is Candlemas, a Christian holiday and a Pagan cross-quarter day. I personally celebrate it as the day when we reach ten hours of daylight and we see the sun both before and after work. That’s got to cheer you up.
It’s also Groundhog Day a holiday I never quite grasped. In Rhode Island you can bet your life on six more weeks of winter, no matter who sees their shadow.
The moon rises tonight at 5:51pm, and it will still be big and round.
