I personally feel that {'e'} is not always necessary to refer back to the 
previous topic.  The author followed her first sentence with the mere {vImuS} 
and I feel that was already clear.  I did not need {SIS 'e' vImuS} nor {'e' 

For the concept "all day," I would use the aforementioned suggestion of 
{qaStaHvIS X}.  In this case, {qaStaHvIS pem naQ} would mean all day during 
the daylight hours and {qaStaHvIS jaj} would mean a 24-hour period from dawn 
to dawn.

Thus, I am disagreeing with using {Hoch} at all.  That would mean "each day, 
every day."  {naQ} indicates a "whole" amount.
