6H 55m of daylight today. Starting to look forward to the days lengthening out. The extra minute of daylight we are getting in the afternoon now is not making much of a difference :eek:

Days start getting longer this week isn't it.

I think the 21st is Solstice. Sunset starts getting a tiny bit later about the 15th, but sunrise won't start happening earlier until about the 27th or so.

Last Thursday I helped haul a bunch of fall pairs to winter ground. There was about 25 dry spring calvers mixed into the loads. The first trip it was easy to sort them. It was 4:30 when we unloaded the second trip. First pot load you could still see to sort them. The second pot I sure couldn't see good enough to tell a wet cow from a dry cow. The next day in the daylight I was amazed we actually got thing right.

The days are just too long for me here, I'll be looking forward to the 21st when they start getting shorter. I get up at 5.00 am and like it to be still dark and just getting light when I go outside at 6.00am, we have a bit of a way to go before we get that again though.

I always hated winter in Maine. Go to work in the pitch black, go home in the pitch black. Hardly got to see the sun. It's much better out here, now.

And if like Vermont, not much to see in-between anyway.
