thanks for all your replies, everybody...Aiona, your NASA post made me feel somewhat affirmed, then I read that the change is measured in mere milliseconds, which seems so tiny...IngaM, especially up in Canada, I would guess you feel it more...I lived in Alaska for about a year, waaaaaaaaaaay back when, and I remember the remarkable contrast between winter and summer. The sun would set at 10 pm in Anchorage midsummer, and I was in Point Barrow one January where the sun only rose for about 40 minutes total! I felt like I was walking on the moon for the ten days I was there.
kbe, sunset is around 4 pm these days, which just seems really wrong
Today is a brilliantly sunny day here, but diamond hard ice cold and the best I can do right now is sit near a window - not willing to step outside just yet....brrrr...
This is really the first winter that I think I am affected so markedly. Sounds like y'all know what i mean.
