A few days ago, I told my husband I was ready to go to sleep at 8:00. He accused me of being a bird.
I wasn't even tired. I'm fairly sure that my desire to snuggle in beneath the covers was driven by the fact that it was pitch black outside. While I've been secretly hoping for cooler temperatures after work so that I'm not sweating out half my body weight during a run, I wasn't quite ready for it to start getting dark so early in the evening.
If you're someone who dreads those "I go to work in the dark, I come home from work in the dark" days, that season is quickly approaching. According to TimeandDate.com, Boise is loosing daylight at a rate of almost three minutes per day. Take a look at how quickly things are changing leading up to the Daylight Saving Time change on Halloween.
