    Ive noticed/read many post wondering about how many hrs of daylight they were getting. For the last couple of years ive checked my weather on www.wunderground.com among thier features was hrs of daylight, realtime sunrise/sunset, nearby earthquakes and various other info. as it goes by your zipcode Ive found it to be very acurate to microclimates. Anyways hope it helps :)

    That is cool! Looks like I am getting exactly 11 hours of light a day.

    That was a very cool little site. I am only getting 9 hours plus some change, but they are getting longer. Why just a few weeks ago it was dark at 4pm. Thank you for sharing!

    Really great site! I'm getting 11 minutes short of 12 hours. I guess I can cut back on the automatic lights.

    Should we be looking at "Length of Day" or "Length of Visible Light"?
