This is the most depressing time of year to be in the Pacific Northwest. Officially, the length of the day will be
8 hours, 26 minutes,
15 hours, 59 minutes exactly six months ago. Seven and a half hours’ difference.. it’s like another day to work with.
For comparison, my folks in Texas currently have
10 hours and 13 minutes of daylight. (But they occasionally see flying cockroaches, so I guess it isn’t all great.)
We had glorious weather on Thursday — clear, but cold. I biked to work for the first time in far too long. Even though I left early (at 4:00 p.m.), it was still pitch-black when I got home. I can’t wait for spring. I can’t wait for spring. I can’t wait for spring.
