Man! I thought that winter in Maine was rough! In Maine, I live pretty much a few hundred yards north of the 45th parallel, and the daylight in winter is pretty short. Here in Riga, about 12 degrees further north, the sun, when it does pop out, is a whole lot lower on the southern horizon. I'm no stranger to winter, but it sure makes me wonder how folks even further north deal with things when it's dark most of time. I can see why Iceland has such a high rate of boozers....pretty depressing. Only a few more weeks and we start gaining on the daylight again, so think I can tough it out!
