Midsummer or midwinter?

Today was the solstice. The longest day of the year. Midsummer, supposedly. Only, the temperature barely passed 14 degrees and I have the central heating on. And in the past two days it has done nothing but rain. And it has been so overcast that the sun might have set at 6pm for all we'd know otherwise!

Nevertheless, it was the longest day today, and yesterday evening we had our annual gathering to celebrate it. And, despite the unobliging weather, which ensured we stayed indoors for all but about half an hour, a merry time was had by all!
