Lots of darkness...


While the States now turns the clocks back the first Sunday in November (this coming weekend) we did it last weekend. I now get up and it's dark, and it' already dark before I leave the office.

Officially, sunrise occurred at 6:48 this morning and sunset was at 4:43 this afternoon. It's 5:30 and pitch black outside my office window - and we are almost seven weeks from the shortest day of the year. On December 21st sunset will occur at 4:02, more than 30 minutes before sunset in Minneapolis.

Despite our much milder winters, Prague is at the same latitude as Winnipeg. At least we avoid the -20 degree temperatures.
