For those in northern areas or UK/Europe---Is it getting colder and darker earlier now that before? Or is it my imagination?

I am sitting here writing this….in England…and the bit of sunlight we have was already extinguishing at three this afternoon. I don’t remember it getting this dark this early. We have gone weeks without the sun coming out at all and I don’t remember it being this way in previous years.

It has also been bitterly cold…a wet and stingy sort of cold that blows and chills you to the bone.

This reminds me of the traditional weather of Scandinavia…maybe Scandinavia is now warmer? :)

Is it getting colder and darker earlier where you are than any season before that you can remember?

I throw this out to areas that are tradiitonally warmer as well. It snowed in my hometown at Christmas last year and that had _never_happened in recorded history.
