It happens every year around this time (pun intended), I find myself running late. Why? Because of Daylight Savings time. Yesterday we sprung forward and lost an hour. I first noticed when I passed the kitchen clock and saw it was somehow earlier than I expected. It did not dawn on me as to why until Betty reminded me and I realized I had been fooled again!
Naturally today waking up before 7 AM did not (or actually did) happen. It was 7:15 and Betty was waking me from a deep sleep. Well I stumbled about and managed to somehow help her out the door by 7:30 (actually just 6:30) AM. I along with countless millions are still mostly bleary-eyed and wondering what is it that has actually been saved? For the curious there’s a book. I quote from review:
Benjamin Franklin conceived of it. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle endorsed it. Winston Churchill campaigned for it. Kaiser Wilhelm first employed it. Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt went to war with it, and the United States fought an energy crisis with it.
But does it really save anything at all? An article on internet says if it ever did, due to the way we live now it no longer does (at least if you live in Indiana).
That hour what happens to it? Somewhere around 2 AM on a Sunday morning it disappears; as time goes “Bye!”.
