Spring Forward

Okay, last night I turned our clocks forward an hour. Well that’s not quite true. Some of our clocks (or devices with clocks) auto-magically turn forward on their own.

So our cell phones, iPads, DVR did it all on their own. Even my new Nissan adjusted its clock without me needing to get out the owner’s manual to find out to adjust the clock. Even my clock radio that I have had for many years has a “DST” button that moves the time ahead or back an hour.

I had to manually adjust the microwave, range and two clocks in our living room. Also, I had to adjust Mary’s wrist watch. Truth be told she wouldn’t know the difference if I left it alone. She wears the watch all the time but never looks at it.

I have to be careful with the clock on top of the piano [pictured below]. The battery has a tendency to become dislodged causing the clock to stop.

Paula will need to do the clock in her Prius. This Prius is ten years old. Probably newer models have figured out to to do the magic.

So here’s what bothers me. I hear that politicians are thinking about making us have DST all year round. Now what would I do, to adjust the magic algorithm that makes my phone magically jump forward an hour on the 2nd Sunday in March and back some time in October.

There I feel better. Rant is all done.
