It's mostly quite dark here now but that would appear to be due to the fekkin great black cloud overhead   My lights are getting their first charge in a long while tonight in case Wednesdays ride gets delayed.

There are advantages to living only 43° North. 90 - 43 - 23 = 24°The sun reaches 24° in the sky even on the winter solstice down here. For Kidderminster it's 15°.

We gain about 45 minutes at each end of the day in winter and lose as much in summer. The main difference though is that the sun is bright and warm in the middle of the day whereas in the UK it's a dingy sort of light as the rays fight obliquely through lots of atmosphere.
