Tonight's Sunset

The sun is setting quite early now (it rose at 9:41 and set at 3:30 today). This time of year is so weird to me. I hate leaving the house before 5 and feeling like it's midnight outside. It makes my internal clock a bit confused.

Here are a couple of pictures of the sunset tonight from our deck:

And here is the ice forming on our windows.

Actually, it's forming on the saran wrap on our windows. It's not actually saran wrap, but it's the same concept. I know it's tacky, but it does help keep the cold out. I just hate the fact that it obstructs the view to the outside. Not only do we have very little daylight, but the light we do have is filtered through plastic. Everything looks a bit distorted.

Oh well, that is life in Alaska I suppose. :)

I think the short days during Alaskan winters would very hard for me. I love sunlight.

But I do really like the pictures. What a beautiful sunset.

It is very hard to get used to. In fact, this is my 3rd winter and I'm still not used to the darkness (or the perpetual light during the summer).
