Hello darkness, my old friend

Although I have been noticing the creep of darkness for a few weeks, especially at our weekly circuit training session, it was really tonight that I realised how winter is nearly upon us. Trees are starting to lose leaves and the sky is mostly dark by quarter-to-seven.

Today the sun set, in Jo'burg, at 18h25. In a month it will set at 17h51 and within the next six weeks the sun will sink below the horizon around 17h30. It will be dark an hour earlier than it is now.

I don't feel ready for winter.
