And when our cubs grow / We'll show you what war is good for

Winter’s a bastard

Posted by That Other Mike on 16/12/2007

It’s 4:30 p.m. here and it’s already fully dark. Our sunset time is 4:00 p.m. or earlier for the whole of December. Our sunrise is 7:43 a.m. or later, rising to 8:06 p.m. on the 27th. For a vast part of the month, we don’t have more than eight hours of daylight at most.

On the plus side, though, from the 23rd of May until the 19th of July 2008, we will have at least 16 hours of sunlight every day, with the sun rising at around 4:45 a.m. and setting around 9:30 p.m., which is why I like the summer.

Swings and roundabouts.
