Because that’s when the daylight to darkness ratio starts heading in the other direction!
I laughed out loud when I read this. Who hasn’t felt this way and/or attempted similar things this time of year. I CAN’T WAIT FOR SPRING! If just to see the sun past 4pm!!
Have you been enjoying the 4:11 sunsets? For the last 10 days in Boston, the sun has been setting so early that you need headlights to get home from a late lunch. If you're one of those people who enjoys this time of year, when our sun makes its earliest dive behind the horizon, then I'm jealous.
