It’s that time of year again.
It was getting light around 6am until this morning. Now we’ve lost an hour ant it’s dark until nearly 7am.
It wouldn’t be so bad if there was both sufficient light and warmth in the evening. But we’ve only just passed the spring equinox, there was fresh snow on the Kakanuis a few days ago and it’s still too cool and dark too early at the end of the day.
In another few weeks when the sun has moved further south it will be lighter, and hopefully warmer, at both ends of the day.
Until then I will resent the lost hour in the morning – and those getting up earlier to milk, shear, muster, nurse or any of the other worst hat requires early starts will lament the cold, dark, later dawn even more.
