Winter solstice

Winter solstice morning. -23 I went out in my pyjamas to feel the world and see sign of the coming sun. My frost-pained pinky fingers were the first to tell me go inside. I listened.

I stood on my land and look east and south where the sun will rise, and remembered the summer solstice when I looked east and north to see the sun rise. I was curious and so I checked: sunrise at 127*(SE) today, and at 51* (NE) in June. (For Winnipeg location, slightly north of us) A difference of 75*, so over 1/5 of the horizon circle. Planet awareness.
