People from around here (up north) are aware that the summer days are unbelievably long. So are the shadows on a summer evening. If you are reading this blog from afar, you might be interested to know that on June 20th, our “longest day” of 2012, the sun was up for 17 hours, 24 minutes and 51 seconds. Actually, probably a bit longer since these times are for Grande Prairie, the nearest city to the south. The sun made an appearance at 5:15 a.m. and set at 10:40 p.m. Keep in mind that means that the pre-dawn and dusky light lingered for a while on either side of those 17 hours, 24 minutes and 51 seconds. Amazing, and we love it!
What did you do on the longest day? Fish? Study for those finals? Go to bed anyway? If you want to tell, we want to know! Just hit the comment button below 🙂
