Darkness is now the norm here. I'm lucky enough to have a job that allows me to walk home during the brief period of daylight, but most aren't nearly so fortunate. R walks to and from work in the dark- he sees the sunshine on his lunch hours and on the weekends. You wouldn't think it'd be such a huge deal but to put this in perspective... After I did a quick jaunt to work this morning I was walking home and watching the sunrise. At 9:35am. Sunset was a mere 5 hours and 43 minutes later, yeah, at 3:18pm. Tomorrow, our day will be roughly 4 minutes shorter than it was today.
