So we are falling back to standard time this weekend. Tonight or more specifically at 2am Sunday, clocks will suddenly change to 1am. Well…at least our cellphones, computers and other electronic devices. I think I would freak out a little if the hands on my wall clock moved back automatically.
On a side note – I often go through the house and change the clocks all at once. While it’s a pain it’s not like I work in a clock shop. Can you imagine having to change ALL those clocks twice a year?
Ok – back on track….
So Daylight Saving Time is ending which means it will be lighter and darker earlier. Here’s a look at the sunrise/sunset differences between Saturday and Sunday.
That’s going to be an adjustment coming home and it’s already dark. Although I feel for those parents whose children will still wake up at the same time and not give mommy and daddy that extra hour of sleep.
One part of this time of year that drives me nuts is grammar. Now I will fully admit I am not great with spelling or grammar, which is why I am a scientist. However I seem to remember little things, for example it’s pronounced and spelled Daylight Saving Time not Daylight Savings Time. We are saving time or time is saved…not savings time.
