I am so happy that I realized looking outside at 5:30pm and it was still light outside. I remember when it was 4:30pm and it was dark as anything. Just means we are closer to spring, and the nice weather again. It is not getting warmer outside yet, but still driving home at 4:30pm in the dark is strange and really throws your system off.

That is why I feel bad about being out at night. It's not safe now with all the hardships people are dealing with. robbing for money and such.

People are more likely to be at work while it is dark and easier to break in. My neighbour had a pile of things stolen.

Nighttime is not getting longer but rather shorter as we get more and more daylight til we hit the first day of not only spring, but then summer
