Winter solstice 2012

The tiny little village of Welch MN roughly 10 miles from where the Cannon River empties into the Mississippi.

The Cannon Valley

Pine Island Refinery.  Yes, this is how we power our cars.  And yes the Kochs have a major presence in Minnesota.

The tiny village of Vasa MN—proof that the Swedes had made it to Minnesota by 1862.  More sunlight in winter but much colder than in Sweden.

Some of the historical buildings of Vasa.  Note the Swedish flag.

Starting today, the light starts to return.
