Hang in there, Baltimore. Sure it's cold, but spring is coming. You can ask the hardy souls in Barrow, on Alaska's North Slope. On Tuesday, after two months of winter darkness, they cheered their first glimpse of the sun. Old Sol rose at 1:06 p.m. Sure, it set again into the Arctic Ocean just 67 minutes later, but days lengthen quickly up there. Today's daylight will stretch for 2 1/2 hours. And from May 11 through Aug. 3, the sun will shine on Barrow 24 hours a day.
