Here are the sunset milestones I will be following as we crawl out of winter here in Anchorage.
Sunset after 4 PM: January 6.
Sunset after 5 PM: January 30.
Sunset after 6 PM: February 21.
Daylight Savings Time: March 10.
Sunset after 8 PM: March 14.
Sunset after 9 PM: April 6.
I can keep going, but having the sun set after 9 PM is all I need. The sun sets at 11:42 PM on the summer solstice.
