You thought last winter was long? Hah!

Do you ever want to escape to somewhere far away and exotic? Maybe to get away from winter? Or your next door neighbor’s noisy dog/kid/cat/whatever.

Well, it’s hard to get farther away or more exotic than the planet Uranus. Earth is the third planet from the sun, while Uranus is the seventh. You know what that means: it’s cold! (So you won’t get away from winter, you’ll be heading right into it! But what the heck, go for it.) In fact, Uranus is about -355 degrees! Yikes!

And I thought we were having a chilly spring this year.

Oh, and speaking of years, a year on Uranus (since it takes so long to get around the sun) is 84 times longer than ours. That means that winter on Uranus is 21 years long! 

Which gives everyone plenty of time to make a cup of cocoa and curl up with a good book. Or two. Or three. Or more.

Hot cocoa and good books are always wonderful.

Does that mean that if I lived on Uranus, I’d be uber successful as a writer? Hmmmmm……. When does the next rocket leave?
