The Lake Where You Live: Fast forward
A little over three months ago we were celebrating daylight saving time and the emergence from the tunnel of winter's long nights. A bit more than a month later we were installing our piers and looking out on what seemed an infinity of life on a lake freed from the grip of ice. Just a couple of weeks ago we marked the longest daylight of the year, the June 21 summer solstice. On that day each year I like to be out in a boat, fishing until it's almost too dark to see. The sun sets at 8:44, and there is fishable light until nearly ten o'clock. The irony is that just after the first official day of summer we start the long slide of shortening days toward autumn, and then winter.
