NEW YORK – If you thought the last few weeks was rough, think again. Winter officially began Wednesday morning.
The winter solstice, the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, began at 5:44 a.m. This point marks the furthest distance the Northern Hemisphere is from the sun.
On a brighter note, days slowly start to get to longer after Wednesday,
While it's a short day for us, it's the longest day of the year and start of the summer in the Southern Hemisphere.
