After 8 years in Alaska, where the darkest day had 3.5 hours of sunlight, and it never GOT dark in the summer, I don't really notice the smaller changes here in CA. Only when we switch from DST and back again. I like it that it's light later, now that we've changed!

Heh - I can imagine, ITHY. I still remember lying in bed as a small girl wondering how I was supposed to fall asleep while it was still light out, and I could hear my parents and older sister talking in the garden. Hmf...
Yes, it is lovely when the sunlight returns. And the long summer evenings are magical.
I love the long summer days and evenings. It was always totally confusing for my kids when they were younger and we went to DK for summer vacation, the rule about not having to go to bed till it was dark out didn't really work too well.
Isn't it so nice with the daylight lasting longer into the day? And the sun was shining a little bit, you know, in between the rainshowers. Right now we don't have curtains on our upstairs slanted windows, but it's definitely on the list. I won't be able to handle another summer of light until 23:30 and starting again at 4:00. Denmark sure gets hit both ways with darkness and brightness doesn't it?
