All the trees are turning....it won't be long now
We've already lost four hours of daylight since the Summer Solstice and the angle of the sun at noon has gone from 75 degrees to 36 degrees. That's the real kicker. These glancing blows are no match for the vertical bombardment of summer. Plus we're still losing more than 2 minutes a day of sunlight and we'll lose another 10 degrees of declination. Oh my. When will it all end? Oh that's right, December 21. Then we just have to wait three months and presto: Spring.
