December arrives today. The daylight is fading, but Mars brightens each evening in the northeast. Average daily highs slip from 51 degrees to 42. The records are 77 degrees (1998) and minus-3 (1880). The average snow total at BWI is just 1.7 inches, and four of the last 10 Decembers yielded just a trace, or none. But more than 9 inches fell in 2002 and 2003. The winter solstice occurs early on the 22nd. The moon is full, and Mars is at its brightest, on Christmas Eve.
