Gunflint Trail Daylight

The days just keep getting longer on the Gunflint Trail.  There are hardly any stars left in the sky when I take Abby out to the bus in the mornings.  Twilight is around 6:05 AM with the sun rising around 6:40 AM.  In the afternoon when I pick her up at the bus stop at 4:30 PM there is plenty of daylight left for her to enjoy.  The sun doesn’t set now until about 6:45 PM.  Soon we will experience equal hours of day and night, the 20th of March to be exact.  This date marks the beginning of Spring and the Spring Equinox when everyone will have 12 hours of daylight.  Although I am looking forward to more daylight I am dreading trying to convince the kids it is bedtime when the sun is still shining in the sky.
