Sun, sun, sun.

Monday, March 3, 2008


Up here above the 72 line, we are now getting about 9+ hours of light per day. It is now light out when I walk to school in the morning (8:00am) ... and light when I walk home (4:30pm) .... and still light enough to walk outside without a flashlight in the evening (6:00pm). So, from about 8:00am to 6:00pm we have "working daylight" ... and the sun can be seen up over the mountains around 9:20am in the morning, and then it disappears again behind the mountains on the other side of town around 3:30).

All of this extra daylight makes Kennie one happy camper.

Yes, the sun can make you happy. It's light out now when I get up, and the sun is coming up when I leave for school at 7:30, and is still in the sky when I leave school at 4:30. Yea Sun!

I am so amazed by people who live above the arctic circle... I get depressed when we "only" have 9 hrs. of daylight in the winter...
