Happy Thermal Solstice Day!

If you have nothing else to justify buying a half price DQ ice cream cake, try celebrating Thermal Solstice Day!!

2012 Thermal Solstice Day Cake, Yes, pure geek here.  We needed an excuse for a cake one year.

What is Thermal Solstice? While the Winter Solstice starts on Dec. 21, the temperature lags because of "thermal capacitance of the atmosphere-ocean-land system." Thermal solstice is about a month after the Winter Solstice - we just pick a day and that is Jan. 21 this year.

By the way, you could also celebrate National Squirrel Day and thank a little rodent who plants all your trees pretty much all over the US.

How many times did you have to explain to the DQ employee what your message was?
