Wanted to share this: Yesterday was the first day of the sun shining into my shop. On December 21st we have only 3 hours and 40 minutes of sunlight but there is about 6 hours of light. Anyway the sun disappears behind the hill, last fall i was in the shop a lot and the sun would be so bright some days that I didn’t need overhead lights! Right now we are gaining every day until June 21st when we will have over 21 hours of sunlight. The sunlight makes it much easier to go to the shop, it gets a bit difficult when I can’t see the sun. Happy new yea to everyone, may this be your best year yet!

A friend of my wife lives in Homer. It’s funny when she talks about the daylight hours. It would be quite a change if your not use to it. Her friend was originally from Florida and her husband, in the Coast Guard, was stationed in Kodiak, and she fell in love with it there. Now that’s a life change….lol

When I posted this blog yesterday it was cloudy, today not a cloud in the sky. Here is a photo today at 11:05 am with the sun just peeking over the hill. In two weeks I will post another photo to show how fast we gain light.
