Bernice and the Time Change


Saturday night I was still catching up on shows I recorded while I was on the cruise and some since then and playing Spider Solitaire. That's my usual M.O. I had been doing some chores in the house, listening to NPR, and reading during the day. There were a couple of movies I watched that took me later into the night. At one point when I went to another room, I noticed that the clock in there said it was 1:45 instead of 12:45 like the ones on my computer and DVR. Hmm, I thought, the clock must have stopped in this room. Then I noticed the same time on the microwave clock and another battery-operated wall clock. "What's going on?" I wondered and went around confused and sleepy for a while.

Eventually it occurred to me that Daylight Savings Time must have expired. If I'd read Frogponder's blog or watched the news, I'd have known. I didn't have to be anywhere, so it didn't affect anything, but I thought it was funny.

I did the same thing - my computer and iPod told me one time, the alarm clock said another. I was confused for a moment, and then thought about DST. I had read several posts and tweets about it, yet still managed to be confused. LOL

Hi there! That is pretty funny...luckily in Hawaii we don't have to deal with daylight savings time! We just don't ever change. It makes me sad in the winter because everyone in Tennessee is an hour further away and it is harder to time phone calls. :( I hope all is awesome with you!

I sooooo dislike it. Not sure if it is worse now that I have sleep issues or worse when the kids were all preschoolers.

It snuck up on me, too. I was so excited to be able to sleep in until 9AM on Sunday, instead of the usual 7AM, and then I realized it was 8AM.
I was not amused.

It sounds like you just entered the Twilight Zone.....briefly.

I was reading your blog when I noticed it.
