Springing Forward

Did you get up in the middle of the night to jump your clocks ahead?

For the last week, we've enjoyed the morning sun illuminating the horizon 30 to 45 minutes before rising around 6:30.

Today, the sun is coming up about the time this blog appeared.

Most concentrate on the sun at day's end - extending natural light into evening.

Just a few feel cheated as the glory of our morning slips back to bed - making us wait for its return.

Clocks adjust without trouble.

For the rest, humans and animals, it can take several days and up to a week to adapt to our syncopated circadian rhythm.

Driving to work in the dark can be a bit disconcerting, but driving home with the lights on due to darkness at 4:30 in the afternoon is sad.

If we can rub the sand out of our eyes and sneak a little nap this afternoon, I think you and I will be just fine.

In a week or so.
