Today is the Summer Solstice, which marks the official start of summer! And it certainly feels like it, the temperatures are supposed to reach 89 degrees here in Oakland today, which is pretty warm for these parts. The solstice has been an important day for people around the world for centuries, because there is more sun today than any other day of the year. In fact the famous monument Stonehenge was thought to have been constructed to mark days just like this.
