Saturday was the Summer Solstice, which means we got the most daily hours of sunlight for the whole year. From here on out we will start to get less sunlight each day, until it’s December in Iowa where we only get a measly nine hours of sunlight.
We get about 15 hours of sunlight on the Summer Solstice every year. I celebrated by going for a bike ride, listening to the cicadas and reading by Gray’s Lake.
How many hours of sunlight do you get on average? You can look it up at timeanddate.com and you can see the historical amounts at the USNO. I’d love to hear in the comments–or tell me how you celebrated the Summer Solstice!
