This time of the year always causes confusion in my mind. It is more difficult to get out of bed in the morning and I’m ready to go to bed at 6pm. The lack of daylight hours causes lethargy in me. Consider how little daylight we have when on today our first light was at 7:10 am, sunrise 7:46am and less than 9 hours later the sun sets at 4:10pm, and the last light at 4:46pm. If it’s cloudy outside then the sky stays partially dark and we may not see the sun all day long. I would not do well in Alaska.
The good news is the days will get longer once again. Until then bring on the artificial light and hope for sunshine.
