More Dark

It likely has become quite noticeable to you recently that the days are definitely getting shorter.  We are losing three minutes a day this time of year.  To this point we have lost more morning light than evening light since the summer solstice, but that will start balancing off in the upcoming weeks.  These shorter days in combination with the lower sun angle is also having an impact on our daily high and low temperatures.  Although we are still within a degree of two of our maximum averages that we experienced in August, those daily averages will also begin to fall at a noticeable pace in about 10 more days.  That all may sound depressing, but in recent years, August has been the warmest month of the year, meaning.  Summer isn’t necessarily over yet.
