Today is Adelaide's shortest day of the year. The sun will rise in half an hour's time at 7.23, and will set at 5.11. We will have two seconds less daylight today than we had yesterday - a meagre 9 hours, 48 minutes and 18 seconds. Tomorrow, however, will be two seconds longer than today.
So, as of tomorrow, the days will be getting longer, and we will be careering headlong back towards summer.
