    Default Scrotnig's sunset times thread

    Thought I'd do another of these...they help me get through the grim dark winter months as Spring gets nearer!

    We are now two days past the shortest day, 21st Dec.

    In Leicester, the official sunset time for 21st Dec was 15:51.
    Tomorrow, 24th Dec, it will be 15:53.

    So, two minutes gained already.

    The crocuses will be out before we know it!

    By New Year's Eve we will have gained seven minutes.

    The nights draw out really quickly during January and early February, then it seems to slow down and it drags badly until the clocks change which isn't until the end of March.

    I can well understand why some retired people go abroad for six months every year. I'm already sick of the dark nights and it's only been about two months. Bah.

    Dark night don't really bother me - I find them quite cosy. Each season has something different to offer and I love that.

    They're fine until you have to go out to work in them.

    Dark on the way in. Dark on the way home. You end up getting no natural light at all, which is injurious to health. However, it apparently keeps Scottish farmers quiet, so that's all right.

    The dark, grey, cloudy, gloomy and gritty weather with the type of chill you can feel in your bones. Brrrrr getting shivers just typing it.

    Are you from Leicester?

    I'm closer to the equator here so we don't get such a drastic difference.
    One thing that took a bit of getting used to when I first got here is that we don't get much twilight either. Full day brightness to night time darkness happens in a matter of minutes.
    Please note that any abuse in this post is both intentional and deserved.

    Anyone that feels the need to further point out that it contains abuse is clearly a total fucking moron who's also insulting YOUR intelligence by pointing out the bleeding obvious as if you were too fucking dumb to notice it.

    This has been a public service annoncement by Fork Me. Have a nice fucking day.

    This is a vital and...ENLIGHTENING thread, my sincere thanks to Scrotnig.
