Don’t Worry, You’ll Get That Hour Back in a Few Months

Once a year, we come to this place in time. Personally, I enjoy this stage of the year more

so than its competitor, and I believe my view is shared among the populous. What am I talking about?…Daylight Savings Time, of course.  Two states decline to indulge in this extra hour of light that most hold dear, those two being Hawaii and Arizona. The downside to this changeover is a loss of an hour of sleep; however, this deficit is so short it hardly matters after the first day or so.

Moving time around, even the slightest bit, can cause odd behavior. I can’t help but wonder about those who attempt to arrive at work an hour late, blaming this on the hour change of the clock. If they’re not careful, their plan will go array for this scenario only works during the November change to Eastern Standard Time.

However you prefer your time, you can revel in your extra hour of light courtesy of Daylight Savings Time or enjoy the dark of Standard Time. Either way is fine, for one thing is certain; time stands still for no man.

See you next week!
