    March 11th

    OK, I must have been living under a rock or something ..... but I just found out today that daylight savings time will come into effect on March 11th, instead of sometime in April like it used to.

    I'm afraid that weekend won't work for me. They'll have to reschedule it to the following weekend!!


    How will this affect your end of winter cycling? I guess it gives more daylight after work which is a good thing. Maybe, just maybe, the weather will have improved enough so that I might be able to go for a short ride after work by then. We'll see.

    One thing it will do for me is give me almost an extra month of base building for this year.

    I switched to metric lunar timing during the Y2K debacle. It's been great, takes awhile to adjust though.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    It shouldn't affect me. Lights on in the morning, probably just blinkies in the afternoon.
    Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

    Central Standard Time makes it not a factor

    However I'm enjoying the daylight during my rides now.
