Thanks Peter and Arlene!

Arlene our days have a long way to go, to 'catch up' to your day, which we will do on the equinox. We are gaining just under four minutes a day now, (you are gaining about 1.5 minutes) and will be gaining close to 8 by equinox in March, when yours and my day will each be twelve hours.

Then... we will zoom past you, getting about 22 hours of daylight on the summer solstice in June.

It all equals out over the course of a year, we all get the same total daylight, just at different times. Ours comes in a great big rush in summer, but leaves us in the dark in winter.

Katy I HAVE A QUESTION, after the winter equinox, do your days get longer faster up there or just a minute or two at a time like ours do????

Thanks Julie, KTN and John.

Julie it's not cold here at all (compared to 'average' for this time of year) we are basking in relative warmth, hovering around zero much of the time.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
