How far is far?
Something that has always amazed me is how big the earth really is. One way that I am made aware of this is by time zones. Here in Alaska we have one time zone. It puts us 3 hours behind the folks in Oklahoma. But, here is what catches my attention. The Girl has moved to Sitka so I checked on the weather. While we have 51 degrees and clear weather, she has 55 degrees and lots of rain for this week. She's also getting a wind advisory this morning that will last most of today. Down at the bottom of the page is a list of sunrise and sunset times. Our sunrise was at 6:51 this morning. The Girl's sun rose at 5:45. Tonight it will set at 9:45 here in Pedro Bay. In Sitka it will set at 8:21. A difference of about an hour and 25 minutes --- but we're in the same state! It's a long ways from here to there.
