Solar Eclipse and End of Daylight Savings Time

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.
