Dark eve winter 2-fer

The shortest, darkest day of the year since 1638, is that much darker in Bellingham tonight with the sky conditions over town being reported as broken variable overcast ceilings at around 5,500 feet, and forecasted to remain that way all night.

There may be a heaven of diamonds shining down through the night somewhere, according to the Annie Lennox lyrics for Winter Wonderland, but not here. But we'll stick around until 12:17 am to see if we'll get a peek at the first winter solstice eclipse in 372 years. The next shot at a 2-fer like this - December 21, 2094, but it should be just as overcast over the southside.
