Daylight Savings(?) Time

Sunday, March 09, 2014

This morning sure did get here early! The price we pay for extended daylight in the evenings!

It's not like we really saved any daylight, we actually just moved it from the morning to the evening.

Yesterday the sun rose at 6:45 and set at 6:30. Today the sun rose at 7:45 and will set at 7:30. Same daylight, just in different places but not saved.

What we really do is take and hour and put it away somewhere and then put it back in October. Big deal! It's sort of like in the parable of the talents when the third man had hidden his talents and preserved them but the master was upset at him that he had not used the talents for any benefit or allowed them to grow.

I guess it's like the weather. You can talk about it but there is not much you can do to change it.

    Yes, it's just a big shell game, switching the hours around. (smiling)

    Takes me about two days to readjust. Thankfully I am taking tomorrow off so I don't have to face waking up in darkness again until Tuesday!

    For me instead of getting up at 8AM I got up at 9! It will take me a few days to get back to normal. I guess going to bed an hour earlier because of the time change will make it a lot easier to get up.

    As an old Indian is quoted... Only the Government would think it could cut a foot off the end of a blanket, sew it on the other end, and expect a longer blanket.

    Yes, it does take some time to adjust to the change each way and I personally can't really see the usefulness either, but it is what it is.

    It's not so bad adjusting when your retired. It would be nice to end it though.
