Russia: The Days Are Getting Shorter!


I was drinking my second cup of coffee & thinking about how short the days are this time of the year.

Sunrise at 8:14 am
Sunset at 4:15 pm

They will get much shorter.( it is just half way through November)

Called the Winter Solstice (meaning) Sun set still in winter! (around the 22nd of December)

In Moscow we will see only about 6 hours of daylight at the Winter Solstice. Farther North the world will be dark 24 hours.

As I sit here at the computer & type this, the sun has gone and it is almost dark. The temperature is -2 degrees C. and wind chill of -6 degrees C. I can tell it is going to be a cold winter!

Bear is happy! 🙂
