It’s still winter… but also, is it? Not only are temperatures going to hit spring levels this weekend, but Chicago sunsets just passed the 5 p.m. threshold.

Today, the sun will set at a respectable dusk time of 5:01, according to TimeandDate.com.

And since the Winter Solstice was Dec. 21, the days will only get longer from here! Soon, we’ll all be hanging out on sunny patios after work, instead of leaving the office only to be engulfed by tar-like darkness.
