The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

12 December 2002

Clouds from both sides now

Monday: high 44, low 40, overcast.

Tuesday: high 45, low 40, overcast.

Wednesday: high 44, low 40, overcast.

Today it's supposed to rain.

I realize that this isn't the worst possible weather pattern for winter — nothing's likely to freeze at these temperatures — but it might be nice to see the sun once in a while, just to jog the old memory cells.

And the sunset, such as it is, has gotten to its earliest point (5:17 pm); from this point on, it gets later. (Sunrise is 7:30 am; the latest sunrise, around 7:40 am, will be around Boxing Day.)

Sunset here in MT: 4:33 pm. Weird...drive to work in the dark (7:15 am), drive home in the dark. Can't imagine Alaska...

If you get far enough north, it doesn't matter: the sun is up for six months, then down for six months. Or something like that.

I used to joke that in Fairbanks this time of year I could watch the sun rise and set during lunch break.

Geez. We're lucky to get ten minutes. :)
