17 hours of sunlight in one month doesn't seem like much, to me.

That's what I took from Russ's post as well....17 hours in one month, not per day.

Yip,I'm in nz, and that number is correct but today was nice and sunny, add maybe 5 hrs today, we are past the shortest day so it can only get better.

It was over 100 yesterday, because I was working yesterday. Today was not so bad. We had 50/50 sun and clouds, and a decent breeze.

Tomorrow I fly to Sarasota, Florida for five days. It will be ten degrees cooler, but a whole lot more humid.

Our current temperature has dropped two degrees from the day's high - it's now 86. "Operation Tucked In" has officially commenced. Just like we do in the worst of the winter, we've closed the fins on all of the windows, pulled down the room darkening shades in all of the bedrooms, and are keeping our noses inside of our climate-controlled house. It's still light enough to navigate, so no walking into furniture. Besides, with the heavily wooded back yard facing west, we end up putting interior lights on often even when the windows are nekkid.

Looks like this run of temps dancing with 90 degrees will last for a whole week. I'll have to suck it up to replenish some supplies - which I'll do in one trip since I have an appointment on Monday that has been rescheduled four times already!
