It is interesting to note that although many call this the first day of winter, many call it Midwinters Day (or Night). After today the days start lengthening, which means that it must be the middle of something.

This is absolutely ridiculous. I think the Palo Alto City Council should convene a special meeting to make sure that these short days never happen again.
I'm a taxpaying citizen and I've had it with short days. With the short days, I find it hard to see the traffic on El Camino, Alma, or Middlefield. My kids have to go to school when it's barely light outside, and at night when they're doing homework it's difficult to concentrate because it's so dark outside. Finally, it's harder to avoid the homeless people on University when it's so dark.
I hope the city council gets on this matter quickly. Until then, I'll just take my tax dollars to Menlo Park or Mountain View.

Its time for a city council resolution on this. How dare the sun give us so little daylight!
