At the prospect of having to reset 12 clocks for the 12 rooms in our Washington, DC Bed and Breakfast, I began to wonder exactly what I saved with Daylight Savings Time. Was it sleep? I still wake up between 3:30 – 4:00 every morning no matter how late I stay up at night. Maybe it was a longer work day. I do work from sun up til sun down. But, I don’t think that’s really it. As a matter of fact, I’m not sure that I got any benefits from Daylight Savings Time. What was it all for?
Although we get an extra hour to sleep tomorrow….there will be a Hybrid Solar Eclipse on Sunday Morning. Yes Washingtonians and other East Coast dwellers, while you may want to sleep in, you will want to see the beauty of a 6:38 am Solar Eclipse. In the US, the event will already be in process when the sun rises. The eclipse is only about one and a half minutes therefore we shouldn’t blink once outside to observe the event.
So, I guess there was a prize to denote the end of Daylight Savings Time. Our reward is a Solar Eclipse at sun rise on Sunday morning. What a beautiful and rare event to behold. I shall not miss it. Afterwards, I will go inside our Washington, DC Inn and prepare a special breakfast for our guest to celebrate the end of Daylight Savings Time.
