It is beginning to feel like summer might soon be arriving here in Winnipeg. The temperature definitely isn’t showing it, but the days are starting to get a little longer everyday and I am really starting to notice.
I think my favourite part about the sun staying up longer is that it makes working later in the evening not feel like I am working quite as late. I have noticed that I am getting to enjoy more and more time driving in the daylight. It is so much more enjoyable as I don’t have to strain my eyes to see into the darkness.
Time for some nerdy facts. Today marks the first day of 2015 that the sun will set after 6:00pm (6:01pm to be exact) in Winnipeg. We will soon be adjusting our clocks forward for the summer to take even more advantage of the daylight hours. I am looking forward to officially saying goodbye to winter in 24 more days. I hope that there are even fewer days until we can start enjoying some wonderfully warmer temperatures that are above the freezing mark.
Until then, I will continue to enjoying watching the sun set over the frozen, snow covered prairie. Winter sunsets are really quite beautiful when I am sitting behind a window in a well heated house. I still have a few outdoor items that I want to cross off my bucket list before this winter dies, but I want a bit of warmer weather to enjoy them with.
Are you excited that spring is right around the corner or are you sad to see winter go?
