In Paris:
Sunrise 8:01 AM
Sunset 5:10 PM

I don't mind morning commutes in the night so France is fine to me. I prefer it than being at the eastern end of a time zone like the UK or Poland. At the latest the sun comes out at 8:44 AM. But then we have our 10 PM sunsets in June.

Sometimes I think at least half the posters here suffer from SAD or something. Or THINK they do...

I'm under that impression as well. Or they're just really sensitive.

Well I gave you my reasons why I want evening daylight. It's convenience as well as just liking daylight.

Although when I used to be in a windowless office, the SAD might have been almost accurate.

Fair enough. It comes down to our personal preferences and lifestyles. Though I do question the psychological sensitivity of some here (not you, nei). I obviously whine about the long days of summer and stretches of sunny weather, but I've never been driven to the point of depression over something so trivial and out of our control. If that's your worse problem in life, then you have it pretty good.

Same. To me, the weather and climate are the least of my worries and the lowest on my criteria for quality of life. The people I sometimes interact with on a daily basis complain that it was too cloudy today, but really, I personally didn't notice it was cloudy (cause I had other things on my mind besides the cloud cover)

Weather allows us to do certain things.

This forum attracts people who are affected by the weather. At least 4 of the regular forum members have moved to a place for better weather (and maybe B1987 as well?)

My point is that there are more important things in life to worry about than what time the sun sets. I understand that everyone has different lifestyles, interests, and preferences. And I don't doubt that climate plays a significant role in quality of life. I talk about it all the time. But so do a lot of other things.

People often move to more desirable climates, only to realize that the grass isn't always greener. There are much more important factors that drive happiness (social life, family, finances, etc.)

I wasn't disagreeing with you. I was more pointing out that a surprising number of people here have moved for weather-related reasons.
