We've reached bottom.

Here what we're dealing with in the top left corner of the country:

Friday 21 December 2007 Pacific Standard Time

Sunrise 7:56 a.m.
Sun transit 12:09 p.m.
Sunset 4:21 p.m.

Ugh. That's a whopping 8 hrs and 25 mins of daylight, people. Happy Winter Solstice. Watch out, better get out the sunscreen!

Sun over the post office (barely) @ 12:09pm PST, 12/21/07

Compare that to Tampa, where my sister lives:

Friday 21 December 2007 Eastern Standard Time

Sunrise 7:17 a.m.
Sun transit 12:28 p.m.
Sunset 5:39 p.m.

Yes, they're enjoying a full 10 hrs 22 mins*.

Be forewarned: I will brook no whining from anyone receiving more than 10 hours of sunlight today unless the temp outside is below freezing.

*Wish I had thought to have her get a shot of the sun at her house @ 12:28pm EST.
