The sun never came out today, so therefore it can't set. Does that mean passover can't start?

No matzah for me, I guess.

It’s OK. It never really sets or rises. The earth you live on revolves, and sunset and sunset are illusions. PM me if you need a better explanation.

I’m pretty sure the sun still sets even if you can’t see it.

Just because we didn’t really see much of it, doesn’t mean it didn’t rise. And of course, if it can rise without us seeing it, it sure can set without us seeing it. It’s still going to get dark, isn’t it ? But as @dpworkin states, it doesn’t really rise or set at all, so does it really matter ?

Yes. That’s exactly what it means. No Seder for you.

sun never goes in, either. We like to think it goes up and down.

What will they ever do in Homer, Alaska?

They can figure out Pesach in Homer, but I don’t know what they do about Lag B’Omer.

I just received the “SeaCheetah” award for my quip above. At any minute, I’m expecting a middle aged Daryl Hannah (mermaid in Splash) to show up at my door. Much better than an airCougar – Sally Field (Flying Nun).

Just send me an landPuma – Monica Belluci, and I’ll be a happy girl.
