This cartoon was inspired by Jill at Elemental, My Dear Blog. She asked people to capture the phrase “march comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb” in words or pictures. I of course think of March as the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring and of course Daylight Savings Time.
Not only does it mean I lose an hour in my day but it also means that it will stay lighter longer. All of which makes sense to me even though we aren’t farmers who need the extra light anymore. What kills me is actually in the winter when we push back the clocks an hour. All that means to me is that it is dark when I go to work and gets darker that much earlier so I come home in the dark too.
What’s even crazier is that some locales in the States honor DST and others don’t. So some cities that part of the year are an hour behind are now the same time. I always forget when which makes it fun for when I visit those cities for work. I am either on time or an hour late.
What are your thoughts? Any benefit to it anymore or should we dump the whole system?
