The Longest Day


The longest day has passed. 

Daylight stayed on my doorstep until almost 9 PM until the day slipped away into darkness. 

I enjoy that day every year when the light keeps the darkness at bay for the longest amount of time. From now until the winter solstice the days will progressively become shorter. But for the next month I will revel in the longer days.

The past three days were 14 hours 56 minutes and some seconds long with daylight! By December the daylight will be down to 9 hours and 24 minutes. Over 5 and a half hours of difference. 

Summer is off to a great start. 

The hot and long dog days are coming in a month to punctuate the arrival of summer. 

Bring on the heat, the fun and the vacations. Not to mention the pools.
