Here in Seattle, the days are getting shorter, grayer, and colder. And rainier. I believe, but am too lazy to check, that it was last March that we only saw the sun two days for the entire month. It’s been getting darker too. Every year I’m surprised anew about how early it gets dark outside. Today the sun had set by 4:30, not that Seattle could tell. The gray sky gradually becomes black. The worse was when I used to arrive at work by 7:30. I’d pull into the parking lot as the sun was just coming up, and leave after the sun had already gone down. Small wonder that all the doctors around here seem to recommend vitamin D supplements.
