What Time is It Now?

November 1st, 2015 Comments off

Most of the US, Canada and Mexico’s northern border cities will end Daylight Saving Time (DST) at 2am (02:00) local time on November 01, 2015. The clocks will “fall back” an hour to standard time, meaning brighter mornings but darker evenings for most Americans. The rest of Mexico and the most of Europe will end DST one week earlier. Most of North America shifts at 02:00 local time, so its zones do not shift at the same time; for example, Mountain Time can be temporarily either zero or two hours ahead of Pacific Time.

Daylight saving time – also summer time in several countries – is the practice of advancing clocks so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn. The modern idea of daylight saving was first implemented during the First World War. Many countries have used it at various times since then.

The practice has been both praised and criticized. Adding daylight to evenings benefits retailing, sports, and other activities that exploit sunlight after working hours, but can cause problems for evening entertainment and other occupations tied to the sun. Although an early goal of DST was to reduce evening usage of incandescent lighting, formerly a primary use of electricity, modern heating and cooling usage patterns differ greatly, and research about how Daylight Saving Time currently affects energy use is limited or contradictory.  (to to the link to read the rest of the article)

Isn’t it good to be out on the front porch again?

I’ll say!  I’m tired of being cooped up in the house.

Me too! Summer has officially arrived!

The flowers are in bloom, the birds are singing, and I sure enjoyed turning the furnace off!  

Me too!  ‘Course now we’ll have to turn that blasted air conditioner on!

Just enjoy the moment, Gert.  Just enjoy the moment.

What time is it?

Keep your shirt on, Buddy! No gorillas on this beach!

luxemodo-075-026What lifeguards used to look like in the 1920s.

Men had strict laws to follow, along with the women; they were not allowed to go to the beach or pool without wearing a shirt in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The reason for this law is because they didn’t want it to look as if there were “gorillas on our beaches”.

It wasn’t until 1937 that men would sport the infamous swim trunks and no shirt look at summer beach events.

 

Oh, how I love Springtime! Ah ah ah ah CHOOOO! I don’t care, I still love Spring!
