The Expansion of Days

I finally noticed this morning that the days are slowly getting longer. Got up for a morning bathroom run and thought it was about 9am. Nope, it was 5:33 am. The sun wasn’t shining so it wasn’t that bright, but it was light. In fact, it was like 9am on an average gray day in Göteburg.

And then this evening, at 21:45, it was still the color of dusk. I’d liken it to 20:00-20:30 during daylight savings time on the east coast of the USA. I guess my previous trips here have been too brief to notice the change. I have seen Stockholm, which is a 4-hour train ride north, dark for nearly 20 hours but that was in the dead of winter.

Silly me for not realizing that this area would also be affected by the longer (and therefore shorter-come-winter) days. So, to my friend Annie who asked me about this before I left, I apologize for thinking you were daft!
