Dark Season Slowly Creeping Up

Just to give you an idea of how fast the amount of light is changing here in the mornings, I give you a couple of pictures to compare. Both were taken from my classroom window.


This was the view yesterday morning at around 8:30am. Oddly for this time of year, the bay remains ice-free.


This picture was taken two weeks ago on October 4th at around the same time of day as the photo above.

Wow, dark!
What time is the sun setting these days?

"You mean there really ISN'T 6 full months of darkness?!?!"

Haha, that was my impression of a southerner. :)
