Today is the Autumn Equinox. Half way between 24 hours of daylight and 24 hours of darkness. Well, in Fairbanks, that isn’t entirely true. The sun sets on the summer solstice – it just stays light out. And the sun rises on the winter solstice – it just stays fairly dark.
We have lost four hours of day light since we arrived a month ago. I’m starting to feel nervous about the darkness. On the other hand, I have been waking up at 5:30 and heading out the door before 7:00, which I could NEVER do in NH. So maybe it won’t be as bad as I fear. And hey, darkness = knitting curled up on the couch!
Happy Fall, everyone!
