I grew up in one of the few places in the United States that does not observe Daylight Saving Time. So until I was 18, I never had to do the “spring forward, fall back” thing. After way more than 18 years of living with the time change, I suppose I have no excuse for not taking it in stride.
But as usual, I feel somewhat disoriented with a body clock that didn’t reset automatically like the computerized clocks. Fortunately, the dogs did sort of reset. They must have been tired, because they slept in for almost the entire “extra” hour. At least that was helpful.
I understand the origins of Daylight Savings Time, and the supposed reasons for its extension a few years ago. I still question why we are still observing it, especially since there seems to be no hard evidence of any energy savings.
