  1. Taken at 3:30 PM, right? I hate the long hours of winter darkness and you must hate them even more Lynette. That is why God sent us snow, I guess. Happy Tuesday. Allan

    1. That is a very accurate estimate, Allan! It’s now dark by 4:00 p.m. ugh. We’re leaving for Penticton on Friday for three weeks where the days will be a bit longer and the weather more temperate, so I’m looking forward to that. Yay for leave! We’ll be bringing along our “grand-dog” as well. That will be fun. Cheers.

    1. It is really beautiful, and I would encourage anyone to visit, if only to see the northern lights, but there is amazing hiking and canoeing in the summer, too. The daylight is an definite issue at this time of year. We are down to about 3 hours of light with a half-hour of twilight. Although, a colleague just arrived today from Inuvik for a meeting – the sun went down there on Dec 6 and they have total darkness now. He’s enjoying the opportunity for some daylight!

      1. I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to live in total darkness during the winter!! That’s wild. I’m sure it makes seeing the northern lights even more special though.

        1. I have only been to Inuvik in the summer when the opposite occurs. Everyone suffers from insomnia because there’s no darkness! The sun will return on January 6, but my, that’s a long stretch. The Northern Lights are definitely a very welcome sight!

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
