With Saturn and the sun passing through the constellation of Capricorn and lining up for the first time time since 1664, astrologers warn that anything you try to do on Thursday, the 21st of December will be more difficult than usual, take more time and be more frustrating. That is, except at the Park Creek Ski Area where all trails were groomed for skating and some nice classic tracks were laid down on Wednesday.  At Alturas, Davinius hopes to do a bit of grooming on the shortest day of the year if he is not frustrated by the rare planetary alignment.
