Sunrise January 23, 2011 in Adelphi Maryland

It was cold this morning, 16F, when I took this picture at 7:30. Officially the sun rose at 7:21 which, though a marginal improvement at best over 7:27, nevertheless represents a gain of day length. Any gain is better than slippage. Today will be 39 minutes longer than December 21 and tonight 39 minutes shorter. Starting Monday next we'll be adding two full minutes of daylight every day. That's a good thing.
