Yesterday, sunrise was at 8:18am and sunset at 5:40pm.
Today, sunrise will be at 7:20am, and sunset at 4:38pm, which will be the earliest sunset that I have experienced.
By Dec 20th, sunrise will be at 8:45am, and sunset at 3:41pm - just under 7 hours of potential daylight, and then there's the weather playing its part.
A long way from mid-June, with sunrise at 4:28am and sunset at 10:06pm (and twilight for quite a while afterwards ... ).
Most of the time, it doesn't feel so dramatically different living here compared to Australia, but I suspect the next few months will feel very different indeed.
