Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday in most of the United States and Canada. One doesn’t realize how many devices have clocks on them until one has to change the time on all of them. Fortunately, the time on my TV, computer, GPS, and phone change automatically. I have a bunch of other devices that I have to change manually.
My watch – Fortunately, I got a new watch for Christmas and all I have to do to change the time is to hit the “DST” button and it goes to or from Daylight Saving Time.
My coffee pot – I have a bad habit of not changing the time until I use the timer feature. I’ll want the coffee brewed at 7:00 and it will brew at 6:00 because I didn’t change the clock.
My alarm clock – for good measure, I usually change it the Friday evening before if I don’t have to wake up on Saturday. I make a point not to look at the alarm clock on Saturday.
The clock in the car – This one is difficult because it doesn’t work according to the directions in the car manual. I have to do other things not mentioned to get the time to change.
Synchronizing the sundial – this is the most difficult of all because it is hard to move the sundial EXACTLY one hour. I’ll overmove it and the sundial will be running fast or I’ll undermove it and it will run slow. Worse yet, I’ll move it in the wrong direction and it will be off by two hours.
I hate Daylight Saving Time. I am more of a “set-it-and-forget-it” kind of guy.
