Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Savings Time started at 2AM this morning.  Check your clocks, I'm going to be doing that for a while.

I started setting the things yesterday morning, and most of them will be done this week.   It's a day I look at each clock and watch and wonder why on Earth do I need all these things?

We've got a microwave that has a helpful clock on it, but I can't set it since the one button is stuck.   What I will do is at noon on the dot, I will walk into the kitchen and unplug the bloody thing so it will at least blink the correct time.

One thing though, if you have an heirloom clock, be careful.  It may be easier to stop the clock and wait until the correct time to set it.  Mom's clock isn't an heirloom to anyone but me, but it did get that treatment yesterday.

As for me, I have never readjusted to Eastern Standard Time.  My body kept getting up at 5AM thinking it was 6, so now I'll have the rest of the world getting up with me.

Too bad, I was enjoying the first walk of the day with the City to myself!

Remember:  Spring ahead, Fall back!

Happy Spring!
