You are probably losing 8-10 minutes or more each day now. That makes a big difference in a week. We hardly notice the days getting shorter until around September when we realize that we don't have as much daylight to get the yard mowed after work as we did earlier. "Summer" has hit us as early as February, but normally gobsmacks us around late March or early April. We have had frosts in November, but first of the year is usually in December, but sometimes it is as late as January. It has probably only snowed a significant amount (>1 inch) maybe 12-15 times in my life, if that much. Our largest snow was in 1993, when we got about 8-9 inches. We got thundersnow with that storm.
