Dow’s worst week since 2008 financial crisis; Nasdaq closes in bear market. The Dow closed at about 22,450, higher than when Trump was inaugurated, but well below this year’s high. This is shaping up to be the worst December since 1931 during the Great Depression.

Happy HogWatch & Solstice

snowflakeAt 4:28 PM CST the winter solstice occurs marking the longest night of the year. If everyone has been good, the days start getting longer tomorrow. Locally, the sun will rise at 6:40AM and set at 4:50PM for a total of 10 hours and 10 minutes of daylight, but tomorrow will be a whole 1 second longer.

This also marks HogsWatch, so don’t forget to put out the turnips.
