Wow! The sun sets at 1 o’clock in the afternoon! That is hard to imagine.
Thanks for checking in! Yea it is hard to believe, but we’re losing 7 minutes of daylight PER DAY! When we got here in early July, the sun went down around 2am and rose about an hour later. Now it’s getting really dark around 8pm and the temp is only peaking up to the low 50s.
These changes really affect other things also – people are already starting to stay inside most of the time and secluding themselves. I can see how it will be hard to develop relationships at this time of year. We’re praying for ways to draw people out.
