Shorter Days

Friday, October 19, 2012

Well, the days are getting shorter. I knew this was coming. Sunrise gets later each day by about a minute and the reverse is true in the evenings. I have been using the lights each morning during the commute. (head light, two taillights, and wheel lights for the front wheel) The afternoon commute has been light free until yesterday. Yesterday I had to work late. By the time I left, it was 6PM and rain clouds were rolling in. I kicked the lights on, except for the wheel lights, and rode home knowing the Autumn is really here. I'm not complaining about it, just noting it.

    For us retired Dudes, it means sleeping in a bit later. No complaints here.

    Yep. Today was the first time this year that I rode home at dusk. I've got lights on my bike and the route is pretty safe with little or no traffic but DW still doesn't like me riding when it gets dark. I'll have to make sure I start home earlier next week or I'll lose my riding priveledges :-).

    I've noticed too and I'm a Summer, Spring person but I won't complain either.
