Summer is winding down

I'm so sad that summer is winding down. Fall is my favorite season and I am really looking forward to fall, but summer went by way too fast this year. It's already starting to get dark early. It's full dark by 8:00 now days. But it's not as bad as December when the sun sets at 4:15. It's a good thing I have a window in my office or I would never see the sunlight in the winter!

How can today and the longest day of the year both be 15 hours and 17 minutes? Did I read it wrong? It is dark and rainy here in Montana today and I can feel fall in the air. It didn't feel that we had much of a summer...other than the one week you were here.

OOps-it's corrected now. Can't believe it's already September
