Daylight Saving…D-OH!


Rob Mayeda

Ah modern technology. Sometimes we take it for granted how our lives have become so automated. Case-in-point my self-adjusting alarm clock that at some point overnight *reset* itself back one hour thinking Daylight Saving Time had ended.

Technically, it was correct, given it was the last weekend in October. One problem though, this year, that time has changed so to speak and it’s actually *next* weekend on Sunday, Nov 4th.

This wouldn’t be a problem for most folks, but for a certain NBC11 weather forecaster it meant waking up and wondering how it was suddenly 30 minutes before his first Today Show weather forecast instead of the hour and 30 minutes like he had planned the night before.

As I go shopping for an old-fashioned wind-up alarm clock this week, let this serve as another reminder that Daylight Saving Time does indeed end on Nov 4th. That’s next Sunday despite what your PDA, ATM, PSP or computer-brained device may tell you.

Enjoy your extra hour of sleep. I didn’t have time to.
