Earlier Saturday, a rather nice rainbow appeared to end just above the banana grove.
Some showery storm clouds blew in, and then the clouds broke just before sundown. A nice bright and colorful way to usher in the year’s darkest 24-hour period: The night before the new moon closest to the winter solstice, a.k.a. the night of the fifth candle in the chanukiah. We’re past the halfway point of the Festival of Lights. The nights will be getting brighter–from our remaining three nights of adding a candle to the chanukiah and from the increasing moon–even as the daily sunlight will continue to diminish (by a mere five minutes) over the next two weeks.
