Now that's depressing.

According to the news last night, since the snow started in November, the sun has been out for only 9% of the daytime hours.

In the bleak midwinter, indeed.

It's sunnier at the Secret Gift Blog.

Uhg. I can take the cold, but the lack of winter sunlight can be horribly depressing. I'm convinced that the best winter days are the ones where the ground is covered in snow, it's 2 degrees out, and the sun is reflecting so brightly that it hurts to look outside.

I don't know the percentage of sunlight we've been having here - in Nova Scotia, Canada - but it seems like it is as low as yours.
I agree with Katie about the best type of winter days - below freezing in temperature but with bright sunshine.

We've also been having above freezing temperatures (although not by much) which has decimated our snow cover. So it's doubly depressing to look out the window.

Oh, hang in there. I am sure it will get better soon... I miss Colorado, where the sun is almost always out :) Happy New Year!
