Meeker Locals: June 19, 2008

MEEKER — Tomorrow, June 20, is the official start of summer, otherwise known as the summer solstice. Maybe now it will stop snowing. At least for a few weeks. We had reports of flurries as late as last Wednesday morning. What’s special about the summer solstice? It’s the longest day of the year. Therefore, tomorrow is the day you might be able to complete everything on your to-do list, as there will be about 14 1/2 hours of daylight. And then it’s all downhill from there.
