This is not the world's best photography, but the purpose is to show that the days are getting longer. This was taken at around 7:00 p.m. and it still wasn't completely dark. Words cannot express how happy this makes me.
Here's a little fact you probably didn't know: every month, Dale prints out a chart of the sunrise and sunset times and puts it on the fridge. That's what people do when they're old. According to this chart, on Feb. 1st the sun rose at 8:02 a.m. and set at 5:21 p.m. Today, Feb. 28th, the sun rose at 7:14 a.m. and set at 6:07 p.m. That's 94 more minutes of daylight in just one month.
There you go. Some good news on the last day of February. It's supposed to be a lion of a day tomorrow, but I guess that's a good thing. Come quickly, little lamb.
