Which One Did You Forget?

Virginia Beach, VA.

54 deg. overcast, NE wind @ 2 mph.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy in the morning...then becoming partly sunny. Highs in the lower 60s. Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph.

OK, you've changed the clock in the living room, the microwave, the one in the bedroom, your wrist watch, the computer clock, and the one in the radio.

Now, I'll bet there's at least one more that you've forgotten about. Stop and think, is there another one someplace?

For Jim it's usually the one on CLT's radio. Sometimes it takes a month or more before he realizes that it hasn't been changed yet!! ; )

Of course for full-timers that travel across the country, from time zone to time zone, it gets even more difficult. Have you ever crossed into a different time zone on the same day that the time changed for daylight saving time?

Now, that can get really confusing!!! If you're going the right direction, you may not even have to change your clocks!! : )  Or if you're going the other way, you may have to change them as much as 2 hours!!! : (

Mid-afternoon yesterday, Jim and Linda took CLT and headed to Joe and Nancy's. Nothing special going on, just more visiting and catching up. And, I suspect that they'll be going back today. ; )

Did you know that During World War II, President Franklin Roosevelt instituted year-round Daylight Saving Time, called "War Time," from February 9, 1942 to September 30, 1945?


  1. What is really confusing is spring in Arizona when the time changes. Drive to new mexico, change your watch. Drive to texas change your watch, and that can be in the same day easy!

  2. I recommend staying Arizona, because they don't change their time.
