I just realized today that Toronto gets approximately 40 times
as much sunlight energy in summer than in winter.
How did I get this?
Well Toronto's U.V. in mid-winter on the brightest day is only 0.9,
but in summer the U.V. is typically 8-9.
In winter we average 2-3 hours of sunlight a day,
But summer, with 40% average cloud cover and 15 hours of daylight,
roughly 8-9 hours of sunlight.
So Toronto gets ten times the U.V. and four times as much hours of sunlight in summer.
*Just for grins, would anyone else like to find and compare annual sunlight levels?
** Maybe all this "extra" sun energy is why I don't mind it being cooler than I'd prefer.
