Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Stonehenge is an annual rain and darkness fest, of course.

When I was reading up on astronomy of the ancient kind, it did occur to me that whereas in some countries (e.g. Egypt) you can probably see sunrise and sunset most days of the year, in England...

"Okay.  It's rising."

"What, you mean behind that large grey cloud?"

When a lot of days are "dull and overcast"...I suppose their calendars were slightly more flexible.

"Well, I think it's today.  I can't actually see it, but I'm pretty sure...ish."
