Spring Ahead This Weekend
Well, if you're like me you are looking forward to spring. Winter cannot end soon enough. This week the Northeast had one of the worst storms of the season. Luckily this weekend it is supposed to hit close to 60 degrees and melt some of the white stuff.
The only bummer of spring being on the way is that this weekend we will lose an hour of sleep when Daylight Savings Time begins. Here is an article from 2006 where National Geographic talks about the history of Daylight Savings Time. It still seems strange to me that we spring ahead in March instead of the first week of April these days, but for a lot of young children springing ahead in March seems normal.
I think I've just made myself feel old. LOL!
