I really didn’t want to do a second post today so my rant about WMC Action News 5 could stay up top, but after surfing social media I just can’t resist.
- Daylight Savings Time did not begin today. It ended. We are in Standard Time now, and will be until the second Sunday in March.
- There is no “extra hour.” We will have as much sunlight today as we did yesterday, minus a couple of minutes because today is closer to the winter solstice than yesterday.
- The sun sets approximately an hour earlier today than it did yesterday. Not an hour later. According to my WeatherBug app the sun will set at 5:01.
- The sun rose approximately an hour earlier today than it did yesterday. According to my WeatherBug app, the sun rose at 6:24 this morning.
One more note: If you work an 8-to-5 you might want to go out to the car and check to make sure your headlights are working. You’re going to need them on the drive home tomorrow.
