Friday the 4th of Jan. was the last day of the earliest sunset. From now on each day will get longer by about one minute…YAY! I think that now, in January, without the distraction of all the beautiful Christmas lights we really notice the lack of light. I had just written a to be a four letter word)…now I understand why.
Last week we had a nice little blanket of the white stuff and I had the occasion to be at home during the day. The light which was in the house was quite remarkable and due to the fact that the snow blanket was reflecting light into every window no matter what the directional orientation. This is spectacular and I guess nature’s way of helping us light starved creatures get through the darkest time of the year.
