Lightbulb Darkness Falls in Maine??

I just started looking through the webcams that I've grown to count on every day, and it appears that I've missed it! At 4:29 ET, it's dark there!! That's so funny. I'm sitting here at 3:29 CST, and it's sunny out. It was a surreal feeling......one of those look at the clock 3 times to verify moments.

Yep. Whenever I pick up the kids from the bust stop at 3:30, the sun is already behind the houses. By 4 PM it's dim. By 4:30 it's dark.

It's just now "dusk", and it's 5:21 CST. I know we had this discussion a while back, but it struck me oddly when I saw it in real time.

"The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below..."

The thought of seeing the moon on new fallen snow - what a beautiful sight that must be.

Sharing eastern time with Maine, our outdoor Christmas lights go on at 4:30PM and look nice in the gathering darkness here in the Washington DC area

I hate the short days of winter but those long days of summer really make up for it. The crystal clear winter nights arn't bas either. I was in Fla last spring and the sun wasn't up until almost 7am. I think we're coming up on the shortest day of the year in the next week or so?
