Talk about LONG winter nights---In the glorious capital of Kazakhstan it does not get light in the morning until almost 10am!! It's really a strange feeling to still be sitting in the dark that late in the morning. We do not have daylight savings here either. And it's getting a lot colder, too.

Not light until 10 am? Thats odd for Texas. I didnt know you guys dont observe daylight savings time. There is only maybe one hour time difference between Texas and Maine, and around here the sun rises at 7 am.

Sorry if I confused------I meant in Kazakhstan it doesn't get full morning light until about 10am. I'm from Texas and am here for the holidays but spend the rest of the year over there. K. borders Russia and the time difference between K. and Texas is 24 hours--so when it's 7am here it's 7pm the next day over there. So travelling is a LOT of fun especially with all the new airport security and jetlag is even more fun. Love being back in the states and enjoy seeing my morning paper at 7am, too!

I love it when the days get longer. It is very hard to get going in the morning when it is still dark when I get up and go to work. Here is a website that you can check the sunrise and sunset times in your area. You can use a selected city of enter latitude and longitude coordinates to get a more accurate table. So, all those who got GPS units for Christmas here is your chance to practice.
