Summer solstice

As I was leaving work this evening, my co-worker Rich mentioned that tomorrow is the longest day of the year. Go outside and enjoy. There hasn’t been much fog in San Francisco this week so we should get to see a decent sunset.

Even though I love fog, the part that bums me out after tomorrow night is that daylight diminishes continuously until December 21. I remember on a trip to Banff, Alberta in late June 1997 that the sun didn’t set until 11 p.m. Incredible.

If only we were in Alaska right now. The sun won’t set until midnight.
