New Hampshire’s electrical utilities are reporting scattered power outages with today’s foul weather. The state’s four utilities say at the peak there were just more than 17,000 customers without power -- mostly scattered up and down the western half of the state and on the Seacoast.

Years ago while chasing my then- toddler around a small hillside park in Derry, I found a large chunk of iron; It was an odd site, this hulking engine block in the brush and undergrowth at the top of the hill.

A thin wire bowed between two of them.
I love the longest night of the year on December 21st more than the longest day of the year on June 21st. Winter Solstice is like the night before Christmas, filled with anticipation and expectation. While huddled in dark woods around my solstice bonfire, the earliest glimmer of returning sunlight is made real. the days grow longer and the promise of impeding spring somehow trumps this newborn winter reality. From this day hence, days grow longer, brighter and eventually warmer until June 21st. Today, we begin that climb.
