Let’s do the time shift again!


As we advance toward the last days of winter, the days get longer and longer. Morning light has been peeping through my window earlier and earlier each day; and, the daylight has been lingering into the evening hours. With this expansion of light with each passing day, we garner more and more heat energy from the sun. As a result, the climate in the month of March in the northern hemisphere becomes gentler and friendlier… true to the adage: “in like a lion and out like a lamb.” And soon, spring will be here.

But before the vernal equinox, Daylight Savings Time pounces upon us this weekend, like a cat on a mouse. We will be advancing our clocks one hour before bedtime Saturday night. At 2 a.m. Sunday morning, it will really be 3 a.m. We are in command of time or at least our clocks. As a result of this time shift, our sunrise and sunset will initially be one hour later; and, we will have daylight longer into our evenings. So, here we are, doing the time shift (warp) again. (Daylight Saving Time (United States) 2016 begins at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 13 and ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 6.)
