Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Now I'm officially happy today will be longer than yesterday. 8)

This is why I like to buy a local almanac every year. It shows the time of sunrise and sunset for every day in the year, so I can track the increasing length of sunlight hours.  :)

I never thought to do that.  LOL  That's an interesting idea!

I can do that on my phone too.

Me too. Plus I can do it on my internet, not only for my city but for for any city in the world. I once did that in a conversation with Mikaela here about which city had worse light in winter, Minneapolis or Oslo. For the record, Oslo is far darker. Today, for example, Oslo's sunrise is at 9:19 AM and sunset is 3:13 PM, for a total of 5 hours, 54 minutes (about three hours less than Minneapolis).

Did that make you feel any better to learn that?
May 2019 be better for us all.

Well, it makes me feel less envious of Scandinavians, though in almost every other way it does seem like it would be a great place to live.

I was talking to a coworker who lived in Iceland for a year. In the middle of winter, daylight was the sun rolling along the horizon for a few hours. In the summer, they'd come out of the bars at 2 a.m. to bright shining sun. I don't think I would like either one.

I'd have to agree, that would drive me nuts!
