Lack of Light
It’s that time of the year when the days just keeping getting shorter and shorter. It’s amazing how quickly the sun starts going down in the afternoon. The sun sets around 4:27 pm and doesn’t rise until around 7:23 am for just over 9 hours of daylight. The daylight gets shorter by around 2 minutes each day this time of year and by the solstice we’ll have just 8 hours and 32 minutes of daylight.
It’s not my favorite time of the year since I’m a light lover. I love the sunshine and a brightly lit room. The electric company loves me because I tend to have every light possible on inside of my house.
The good news is as quickly as the days got shorter they will get longer once again. It’s just one more month and things will turn around.
