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!
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.
