Daylight Saving Time

March 11, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Before the digital age it was very possible to be out of sync by an hour for a day or two after changing the time to or from DST. My Dad would be at the verge of panic prepping the household for the changing of the clocks, no less formal than the changing of the guard at Westminster Abbey (do they really change guards there?). Now with virtually every time keeping device (these were once called clocks if you do crossword puzzles (actually they were called clocks even if you don't do crossword puzzles)) connected to a master time keeping device (where do they keep that thing? Who winds it? What happens if it accidentally stops?) digitally, DST is no longer much of an issue. (Hell, can't they use digital security cameras and drones at Westminster Abbey and also get rid of the guards? Just asking.) The point is not to reminisce or complain about DST (or the guards at Westminster Abbey). The point is HOPE that winter is almost over and Spring will soon... ah...spring. But now the weatherman is predicting snow tomorrow and dashing my hope into a frozen pile of slush. I don't have any photos of frozen piles of slush (or clocks or Westminster Abbey), but I have a new photo of an old building in lower Manhattan. I'm too lazy to check, but I think it might be 56 Beaver Street. I don't really care one way or the other. It's the photo of it that i'm concerned with. Let me know if you like it. Just asking...
