Column: Is this really surprising?

I’ve been pretty surprised with how surprised I’ve been lately.
First has been the early afternoon darkness after Daylight Savings. Despite growing up in Klawock and this being my sixth winter since moving back to Alaska, it’s apparently still shocking that it gets dark early. The worst part is that daylight will give to darkness for another month so again, how is this so jarring?
