Change your clocks back!

Just a reminder to change your clocks back. We lose an hour of sleep, but it's worth it to know better weather & longer days are coming!

Joy joy joy excitement is in the air here! Beautiful day yesterday & today, 60 degrees or so, but back down to the 30's tomorrow.... sob sob.

RE: Change your clocks back!

Brendasue honey, you mean "set your clocks ahead an hour." It is "spring ahead, fall back" with daylight savings time.
But you're right--longer days, more sunlight and gardening 'til we drop is just ahead!

RE: Change your clocks back!

And don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

What! You don't have a CO detector? Think about getting one. It could save your life.


RE: Change your clocks back!

I'm glad someone's excited about the change coming so early. I live on the far western edge of eastern time, so this morning the sun rose at 8:09 thanks to the change. I'd rather keep my morning sunlight than have an extra hour in the evening when it's still too cold/wet/unpredictable to do much outside. Harumph!

RE: Change your clocks forward NOT back!

Marlingardener thanks for correcting me. I got so excited I really messed that up < red face>. Oh why can't you edit posts on the forum!

Johanna h: just go by the time change I originally posted-you'll gain two hours! lol. 8:09 wow that's late.

Adirondackgardener yes it is a good reminder for the batteries for CO detectors & fire alarms. In town here a couple of years ago there was a tragic accident during a kids birthday sleepover-CO from the furnace I think it was overcame the kids, the parents were in bed & could barely call 911 they were so out of it. Tragic, very tragic. Thank you for the reminder!
