Okay, now – we had our spring forward, and now it’s time to faaaaaaaallll back! It always seems to me that more people like falling back than springing forward. It just seems to make a real difference to many folk.
I really love springing forward, when the clocks move up an hour in early spring. We get all that extra daytime / evening light. And I love falling back now, because it is so dark so long in the mornings. Tomorrow morning, it will be early light when I open my eyes, not the middle of the night dark it’s been.
I can handle the early evening dark – at least up through the first of the year. By the middle of January, I am craving lots more light, and watching the seconds of light increasing each day on the Wunderground weather website.
We can also be glad we live on the western edge of our timezone. If we lived in New York or Chicago – on the eastern edges of theirs – it would be dark about 4 in the afternoon. Way too hard to deal with.
One thing for sure – now that we’re falling back, the holidays are rushing upon us. Wheeeeee!
