Daylight Savings Time has ended for the year. It is now Standard Time. But with the change, comes the time when all of the clocks need to be adjusted. Some are easier than others, but getting them to all gree on the time is almost impossible. Some clocks are set by computer networks, others are set manually. A few are forgotten.
There was an article in the Washington Post last week about community clocks, those big clocks on sides of public buildings. I can’t say I notice too many on my daily commute. The article made an interesting comment about how their ability to keep time makes a statement about the community. I used to laugh whenever I passed a bank with a clock or temperature listing that was clearly wrong. I don’t think I ever made a decision about the quality of the business based on the functionality of its clocks. I guess that if I can’t set the clocks in my own house, I shouldn’t have a problem if others have the same problems with their clocks.
Personally, I don’t think we need the sun to rise before 7:00am. I would be happy with a few more weeks of Daylight Savings Time as that would also mean a few more weeks where I can get home from work before the sun sets.
