Day 9.356: An extra 1.0000115 days

We saw the new year in with BBC Radio 2 live web stream at 7 pm EST again this evening:

Here at Exiles on a Maine Street, the new year is still 10 days away, but the rest of the time, the coming and going of the years affects us the same as everyone else and 2016 has had its share of joys and challenges just like any other year. If it seems to have been a bit longer than it should, that might be because it was. Not only was it a leap year, but just before midnight, we will have had 11:59:60 - a leap second - as if 2016 just couldn't resist one last moment of fame before passing into history.
