In Le Bic, the current sunrise is at 6:34 am with sunset at 6:31 pm.
It makes for an interesting difference in how I perceive daylight, I’m thinking. I’m going to look at what the winter sunrise and sunset times are for Le Bic, where we’ll spend some time this winter — totally dark by 4 pm, our neighbors said.
Decades ago, my time in Northern Germany in the winter found it light at 8 am and dark by 4 pm, too. It was depressing then, but we didn’t have any snow and the skies were gray.
Folks in Quebec who like winter sports — snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, etc. — love the crystalline light on clear days. We’ll see. I'll be taking my (seldom-used) light box with me!
