History of dawn in the Canadian winter
Posted by Christopher Moore
Something you notice, going to Edmonton, Regina, and Saskatoon in mid-January. There may be mild weather and snow melting everywhere. But you know you are in the real Canada when it's a month past the solstice, and at 8.30 dawn is just breaking through in the south-east. This ain't the Arctic Circle or anything, but living at latitude 44, you forget....
I was talking last night to a lively crowd at the University of Regina. Today I'm at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. Looking forward to it.
