The winter darkness is over. Well, the worst part was actually over by the beginning of February, but now there is actually light enough for going for a ride after making and eating dinner with the family, which is what motivated this post. The day is now 11 h 43 minutes long, exactly 6 hours more than around Christmas. In just under two weeks the daylight savings will kick in and the light won't limit the evenings at all. This is one thing I seem to appreciate more and more for each year.
