Still Life with Robin: Equal Time for Daylight

by Peggy Robin

Happy Autumnal Equinox! 

On this day we’ll get as close it’s possible to get to an equal division of daylight/darkness. If, like me, you get a little kick from tossing out bits of scientific trivia about the equinox, not caring whether you come across as a giant geo-nerd, here’s a good place to pick up some nuggets: 

If you’d like to be a bit more entertaining and pop-science-y with your equinox trivia, then go to for a listicle with “8 Things to Know about the First Day of Autumn”:

If you were hoping that the official arrival of autumn in Washington, DC would break the long dreary spell of stormy/rainy/cloudy days – and omnipresent mugginess – even on those few days giving us glimpses of sun! – I’m afraid you’re going to be disappointed this weekend: 

Keep that dehumidifier running! Sooner or later, some crisp, clear fall weather days must come along.

Still Life with Robin is published on the Cleveland Park Listserv and on All Life Is Local on Saturdays
