Wednesday marks Seattle's last 6 p.m. sunset until March

Say goodbye to the last post-6 p.m. sunset for the next four months, it's time for Seattle's dark season.

The sun sets Wednesday at 6:01 p.m. and it won't set past 6 p.m. until March 6.

Fall seemed to take forever to start, especially following a smoky September and Seattle's driest summer ever, but winter has been quick to come.
