Today is longer than yesterday. Today, November 6, 2016 has 25 hours. That extra hour of sleep was so nice. Remember in March, Daylight Savings Time started and we lost an hour during the night. Now, Daylight Savings Time has ended and at 2:00 a.m. today, the clocks were turned back an hour. More sleep for the Colorado Traveling Ducks.
Now it will be light earlier in the morning. That is nice for people that get up and drive to work in the morning. And, especially nice for the human students. They will not be going to school in the dark tomorrow. But mom reminds us the sun will set about 5:00 p.m. tonight. It takes a couple days to adjust to the time change, but we do adjust. This means winter really is coming soon. If you live in the United States, don’t forget to change your clocks. I am not sure what other countries have Daylight Savings Time.
In Australia, some states do have daylight saving while others don’t. New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, ACT and Tasmania turn the clocks forward in October. Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory leave the clocks alone. It gets tricky at times, especially when interstate travel or phone calls are involved. There are already three time zones in Australia and when daylight saving starts that makes four.
