Winters Solstice Sunset

First day of the Winter season here in the great state of Colorado.  It was a balmy 41°F (5°C) as Scarlett, my 2014 URAL Patrol Sidecar Rig and I motored out of the home neighborhood to the nearby sunset viewing point.

As sunsets go, this one was "fair to middlin" as they say, but it was the Winters Solstice's Sunset so it made it onto this blog.




We've already had more snow, I believe, in the last couple of months than we had all of Winter last year it seems.  There's more snow called for near Christmas Day but we probably won't be seeing it as we'll be out of town.

Time to start working on my annual "Year in Pictures" compilation to bore you folks with along with the usual stats.

Oh, and to prepare for going out of town, I greased the pusher splines (dry again), added grease to all three u-joints and checked fluids.  I'll probably check the sidecar splines tomorrow along with perhaps more grease on the sidecar u-joint as there was evidence of water contamination.

The only thing I could think of is that finally days are getting longer again. Happy Holidays for you and your family, Dom, and all the best for 2016. Cheers from the Black Forest.
