Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 93: Time Zones

I spent most of my life in the Eastern time zone, but I grew to love the Central time zone during my 7 years in Madison, as having the prime time shows an hour earlier is a much better fit for my preferred sleep schedule.

Although the West Coast reverts to a similar prime time schedule as the East Coast for most network broadcast shows, one benefit to the Pacific time zone is being able to watch the Red Sox at a much more reasonable hour.  So even if a game goes into extra innings, it doesn't interfere with my bedtime! 

Of course, we also subscribe to and can watch almost any game at any time that's convenient for us, rather than having to watch live, but it is rather nice sometimes to witness the game as it's being played instead of catching up later.
