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 217: Daylight Savings Time

Although I definitely understand that some of the original compelling reasons for Daylight Savings Time no longer exist (e.g. energy savings, more light and time for harvesting and other agricultural efforts), I'm not sure that I'd want to totally abolish it, even though it could make scheduling easier and more consistent. At this time of year, I'm very happy to "fall back" and return to having lighter mornings and darker evenings, but I wish we could stay that way all year rather than changing again in the Spring.

Apparently, some people are quite adamant about wanting to get rid of this tradition entirely, but for now, we do have to change the clocks yet again, whether we want to or not.  And I'm rather looking forward to an extra hour of sleep tonight and a lighter, brighter morning tomorrow!
