Just before sunset, most of the sky was covered with clouds, but off to the west, it was clear. So we had another fairly decent sunset. And we had sunshine in the house for a couple minutes, although the dogs could not sleep in it, unless they jumped up on the kitchen counters and slept standing up.
Our days are now about 7 1/2 hours of light. Because we are northwest of the Chugach Mountains, we don't see the sun currently until about 10:30 in the morning (it's light out around 9-ish, but actual sun shining down on us, not til 10:30).
It's very gray and gloomy a lot of the time. Like the Pacific Northwest, but dry and cold and snowy. And unlike the Pacific Northwest, we get occasional glimpses of the sun. I can dea lwith the cold and the gray and the short days, as long as I have hope of those occasional glimpses...
