Under the evening moon

We have had rather nice winter weather recently, temperature between -4 °C and -9 °C, sunny days although sun is usually below horizon when commuting to work or from work. But that is changing, slowly, as we go towards February. Today length of day is 7 h 14 min, about 1 1/2 hours longer than at the shortest.

(Posting title is from the poem Under the evening moon by Kobayashi Issa, translated by Robert Has.)
