    Already gaining an extra minute of daylight in the evening.

     

    Reading back i probably should have elaborated. The increase is now at least a minute later each day.

    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!

    It always surprises me how much difference there is east to west, it's especially noticeable around the solstices.
    For example Whitby and Darlington are on similar latitude - and barely 40 miles apart I expect - but sunrise and set are a good minute or two earlier in the east.

    Last night was the first time it was noticeable for me too. The sun was still glinting through the trees at 15:40 when 3 weeks ago it would have set.

    Just about light enough to walk the dog around the fields with no torch. Only in the last few days have we been able to do that after 4.30, so quite a noticeable lengthening of the late afternoon light.

    Still quite light here too. The nights are drawing out! :D

     

    Drawing in, in fercrissakes - as in contracting/shrinking/receding. In/out, shake it all about - either way the misery season is slowly but surely in ascension. It seems like 5 minutes ago that the clocks went back. Who knows where the time goes, Sandy?

    Deffo noticed it getting darker later here today and for the first time. That is one thing January has over Nov/Dec - the vice slowly releasing again! Very slowly admittedly but still...

    Evenings are becoming more noticeable now, but the mornings you can't tell at all. 8am and it's barely getting light.

    It goes so quick as we don't have long from the clocks going back to the shortest day

     

    Clocks went back on October 26th - Shortest day December 21st = 8 weeks

     

    Clocks go forward on March 29th - Longest day June 21st = 12 weeks

     

    That extra month makes a big difference

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
