Now that the sun has set on the Summer Solstice, the days will be getting shorter — in terms of the amount of daylight we’ll be getting as we march toward the, er, Winter Solstice.

Yes, this is one of the depressing things about June 22, which has already dawned in most of the world.

It serves as a reminder of just how fleeting summer is. In this part of the world — in the mountains of Quebec — we’ll start seeing the first hints of autumn by the third week of August.

So, do the math . . . it’s depressing, isn’t it.

Which is why I really must get moving to California!
