Happens twice every year (March and September) near where I live, the sunsets between two trees. These two sunsets, 11 1/2 years apart March 2009 Last evening

Well guess what LG, some of us here suffer from SAD so I can't tell you how much that can affect your mood and how much better daylight can make you feel. Need I remind you how much you complain about

You think? We get these same stories and debates every single year but nothing ever changes.   Long live GMT!

    Yep,totally agree. I suffer from reverse SAD in the summer,become very fidgety and uncomfortable,find sleeping hard. These short days are perfect for me,love them.

    For me it's sad that the days will soon be getting longer again. Guess I'll have to make the most of the short days until the end of January, before things become noticeably worse.

    Full of joys in here tonight, perhaps some of you should become troglodytes :rofl:

    Believe it or not but some of us actually don't like summer!!! Troglodyte...mmm sounds good to me:D Summer actually makes me feel ill to be serious,very down and irritable,not a nice person to be around. These darker,shorter,colder days i feel so much more alive and healthy,to be honest the longest day in June i rejoice,from then on it is the start of the journey back to the good times,feeling normal again. Each to their own,we are all different!

    The afternoons may technically be lighter, but you won't really notice it for a good month or so yet.

    You do notice a little difference before the year is out  but other factors make big differences at this time of year.If it becomes misty/foggy it will get darker but if we get some moonlight it does extend the day a little longer.If on rare occasions we get snowcover and a full moon at this time it can become incredibly light even at night away from streetlights.

    But yesterday Saturday was one minute sooner, it is very gradual until after Christmas.
    Annoyingly still getting later sunrise until January

    Even though it is a little while until it becomes properly noticeable the main thing is we are going in the right direction again from this coming week

    Oh dear today was dreary, barely any light levels - a very definate dark days before christmas feel, and we have more on the way. Need those memories of late May and early June right now, when everything feels so positive.

    Looking forward to the longer and warmer days in 4 months from now as i'll finally be able to get a few more walking-miles done again here in the Peaks, days like today when it's dark, light-drizzle, and fog on the hills aren't much fun.
