We all set back our clocks last night, so I got more sleep but now there is less light. I definitely appreciated getting an extra hour of sleep. I feel more energized and don’t feel as rushed today.
The downside is that it gets dark before 5:00 pm and that is hard to accept. I like the daylight lasting until I at least get home from work. It’s just fucking depressing to drive home in the dark. Especially with the idiot drivers we have around here. They can barely drive in the rain, much less the dark or any other weather condition like fog or snow.
I wish we had daylight saving all year around, but I know that is not practical. So instead of bitching about it, I will take a couple of days for my body to adjust to the new rhythm and suffer through the earlier darkness for a couple of months until the end of December, when we have the solstice or equinox or whatever means that the days start getting longer again.
