Another adventure in the dark

I don’t remember the last time I drove at night. It’s not that I don’t like driving in the dark or have a night vision problem, I just haven’t had the need. Until this evening. I headed out on an errand a little later than planned and ended up returning in the dark.

The past few days it seems like twilight lasts about 17 seconds. The sun reaches the horizon and a couple of blinks later it’s pitch black, as if daylight were on an on-off switch rather than a rheostat. Yes, the days are getting shorter, but my brain wants to think the time is lost somewhere in the middle of the day. When I stop to think about it, oh yeah, twilight gets shorter, too.

I hate November through February.
