My room's view when I can't sleep

One of the nice things about adjusting to the new timezone down here is that I wake up at times I wouldn't normally be awake and see a part of day I normally wouldn't. My first couple nights, I woke up just before 4am and spent each night working backwards until 1am. Since I didn't have a clock setup yet, I didn't ever know what time it was. I just got up and looked out the window to catch some beautiful colors in the sky. My last summer here I didn't have a window so this is a real treat.

1am view from my room.

1:45am view from my room.

Our current sunrise is at 4am and sunset at 11:30pm. In just under two weeks, the sun will stop setting and I won't have another chance to see the sunrises that I love so much until late February (and no, Katie Folts, sunset isn't just as good as sunrise at a better time).

Current conditions:
Fogged in to less than a quarter mile visibility
-7F ambient
12mph winds
-26F windchill


  1. oh you're sassy. I don't think I've ever got a shout-out like that, Thanks! It looks like you're in HoCal? How is it so far? Where do you live in relation to Micheal Deany? I don't see six days in paradise, but I'm glad to see you're having a good time thus far.

  2. I am in HoCal, first floor bay side, 1/3 of the way down. I believe Deany is 2nd floor far side from me.

    HoCal is great. Good people. Quieter dorm. Six days in paradise will take time to process. Be patient :-)

  3. I have to agree with katie on this one. sunrise is always so blurry in my eyes. besides, don't the terms sunrise and sunset get a little fuzzy down here anyway?
