Winter hibernation has begun

With the end of Daylight Savings Time, it now gets dark before 6 PM. And that has already had an effect on us.

At first, I thought it was just me. But, no. People at work are telling me that at 8PM they start thinking of going to bed. We have not even watched the 10 PM news all week. We are asleep by that time.

Compare that to summer, when it got dark after midnight. It was not unusual to put the kayak in the water after 10 PM just to paddle out and watch the sun set behind the mountains behind the city.

Now, imagine December, when darkness will arrive by 5 PM.

Good thing the Holidays will be here to keep us busy and entertained.
