The tundra is on the right side of winter, with regard to hours of daylight per day, but there still isn’t much of it – particularly on cloudy days. (I’m greedy.)
1.) There is a reduced risk of sunburn when there is less sun.
2.) The sun sets before I leave work, eliminating that annoying “driving into the sun” vision issue.
3.) Increased opportunities for stargazing.
4.) It feels less lame to go to bed at 8pm when it is dark. (Sadly an infrequent benefit.)
5.) I appreciate working in a field where I can generally get outside during the limited hours of daylight.
