Darkest nights of the year

In Chicago, from November 15th to December 31st, the sun sets before 4:30pm. Not much before; for about 11 days, it sets within a few seconds of 4:20pm before getting just a few seconds later.

The only point I'm making is: it's dark already. Cassie has gotten exactly one walk in full daylight a day for the last week, and that will likely continue.

Ah, winter.

Oh, and the Fourth Circuit has once again (metaphorically) called XPOTUS-appointed Federal Circuit Judge Aileen Cannon an idiot.

    I'm still somewhat envious that Chicago gets over 9 hours of daylight, even at the December solstice.  Here in Cambridge, the Sun rises after 8 a.m. from mid December to mid January, and we get less than eight hours of sunlight for a full month.  Time to break out the SAD lamp.  I need a serotonin boost!
