Thanks for the welcome AlaskanHowdy and welcome!
Peninsula.. as in stuck out close to the water and lots of wind and rain and storms? Or more protected?
I am close enough to the water that I get a good deal of wind, and rain, and snow but the water also helps to moderate the temperatures.
The water i look out at is a bay, so truly terrible storms are blocked.
I would guess that you are far enough north on the coast there, that Ireland should block truly bad Atlantic storms?
Are things there still Autumn, or already winter?
that's amazing; I guess it's because we're not long past the equinox. You must be a lot further south than us. We're at 52N, about level with some of Alaska, Newfoundland etc..We are about the same sunrise/sunset. LOL Here in east Texas today's sunrise is 7:22 and sunset is 6:54
I am at latitude 59 so a little further north.that's amazing; I guess it's because we're not long past the equinox. You must be a lot further south than us. We're at 52N, about level with some of Alaska, Newfoundland etc..
very interesting - that twilight inclusion makes quite a difference!I am at latitude 59 so a little further north.
I just discovered the problem with discussing day length.... there are different ways to measure day length.
Most people (and when you do a Google search ) it shows the length of day including civil twilight which starts when the sun is 6 degrees below the horizon and ends when the sun is 6 degrees below the horizon.
If you compare day length between places, using only the "day" which measures when the sun is right at horizon, then the difference between one latitude and another isn't as large.
Kind of mind blowing actually.
Right now my place at 59 degrees latitude the daylength is
