Daylight Saving Time

So much for having more daylight ... Seattle's northern latitude, plus the fact that we set our clocks back, means that the sun will set tonight at 4:47 PM.
It will keep getting worse until December 21, the day the sun sets at 4:20 PM.
But it does balance out.  There is always that great time in June to look forward to, when we have nearly 16 hours of daylight and a special parade to celebrate the sun.

  1. I'm excited about DST because it means I won't be going to school in the dark anymore (8am classes shouldn't even exist). But I'm sorry you won't be getting much sun for the next several months :( Hang in there. Come December you can come home and hang out in 80 degree Texas winter weather.
