24 hours of sunlight
How do you adjust to the constant sunlight at this time of the year?
Can you ask other people around the pole how they deal with no sunlight all winter long!
It's been difficult dealing with 24 hours of sunlight. For me it's not so hard getting to bed at night, although I thought that would be really hard. It's more difficult that the quality of light here always feels a little like dawn or dusk. The sun is about 25 degrees up from the horizon all day so when you go to work that feels right, your'e leaving for work in the "morning", but then as the day wears on it never seems to get high enough in the sky. At lunch it feels like dusk a little and then it feels like dawn again when you go back to work. And then finally when it's time for bed it fells like maybe the sun will finally set, but it doesn't. Strange! I have been psyching myself out by pulling the shade and turning on a lamp for half an hour before I try to go to sleep. Then at least I think I'm in nighttime a little bit.
I'll ask around about how the winterovers (those that stay throughout the winter here) handle the 24 hours of night. Look for that in a future journal.
Thanks for your question!
