Short Days and Long Nights


Long Arctic Nights

The days are growing shorter and the long Arctic Night begins.  I noticed yesterday the sun doesn’t clear the trees anymore.  The sun makes a low circuit on the horizon and it never climbs high in sky.  Even this old squirrel was up early this morning while still dark he was out on the feeder.  Maybe the flyers woke him up early or he was just hungry this morning.  The weather bug on Cam 1 gives you sunrise and sunset times.  Watch our day light shrink quickly.  Sunrise this morning will be at 8:44 a.m. and Sunset will be at 4:24 p.m.
