I'm away from home visiting my grandparents this weekend. I'd forgotten how early it gets dark on this side of the country. When we finished our supper at Old Country Buffet last night it was only 5 pm, but already it was completely black outside. When I was at Middlebury this used to hit me hard every year. By December it would get dark by 4:15 and I would be ready to go to sleep for the night. We don't get much more daylight in the Midwest, but it's enough that it makes a difference. Score one for team Indiana.
I think we're all going to Bingo tonight - wish me luck!
