The last sunset before 7pm is almost here meaning the days will be getting shorter soon :(
Hints of fall are in the air in the Chicago area, but one key indicator of the changing season is the fact that the sun is setting earlier with each passing day.
And this week, the city is going to hit a key milestone in that process.
At this point in the year, the city is losing nearly three minutes of daylight every single day, and Thursday will mark the final time in 2022 that the sun will set after 7 p.m., according to Sunrise-Sunset.
The city first crossed that threshold on St. Patrick’s Day in March, but after six months of luxuriously-long daylight hours, the season’s change means that darkness will arrive sooner and sooner for the rest of the year.
I'm looking forward to fall but am not a fan of this part :/
