5 Things You Need to Know, Summer Solstice Edition

Everything you need to know to make it through the day.


  • With a sunrise at 6:26 a.m. and sunny skies with a few afternoon showers, forecasters predict a high of 88. Sunset is at 8:51 p.m. making this the longest day of the year. We'll keep you updated with weather alerts here and on the Lilburn Patch Facebook page.

Air Quality: 

  •  Georgia's Clean Air Campaign has stepped us down from a smog alert today - the air quality index of 80 which is moderate: especially for those who are unusually sensitive to air pollution. 

Hollywood, Holidays & Observances:

  • Summer Solstice ... Usually falls on June 21, but because of Leap Year, today is the longest day of 2012 - Sunrise is at 6:26 and Sunset at 8:51. You can find out more about the Solstice in today's edition of the Lilburn Patch.
  • It's American Eagle Day. In 2008 the US Senate and House of Representatives approved the idea to make June 20th a day to celebrate America's mascot. For years an endangered species, the American Bald Eagle was removed from the endangered species list  on June 28, 2007. Good reason to celebrate the come-back of this noble bird.

Does the Kroger on Rockbridge and Five Forks Trickum fall in the right area? It was $3.12 this morning.
