Winter Days




 
Even though it's deepest winter, it is encouraging that the days are becoming noticably longer.  Several weeks ago, I was feeding Buck and Rupert by illumination from my car's headlights at 4:30 pm.  Now there is still plenty of light at 4:30.


We've had frequent snowfalls over the last couple of weeks, and I've been honing my snowplowing skills on a regular basis.   We have more snow piled this year than any other, and it's still not even mid January.

Nice to see you have a post up.

Yea for more day light!

As for the snow ... we want to see yet more ... we need to fill that 108 Mile Lake up again!

The extra couple of minutes of daylight each day do add up quickly. Sunset is now 5:05 here with dusk light lasting until about 5:30. We too have more snow than we know where to put it, and we lost almost all of it the last week of December.

It is nice that the days are getting longer and this warm spell has been great. All the snow is off the roof but we now have mounds of it be the house.

I've noticed the longer days too and it feels so good!
