One Step Forward & Two Steps Back...

Oh yeah, it's that time of year folks...

Saturday night before you head to bed,
don't forget to set your clocks one hour ahead.

You know what I love about Daylight Savings?

As a Driver, we spend at least 4 weeks this time of year with the sun rising and setting RIGHT IN OUR EYES.
You know, it's all fun and games until somebody gets blinded by the sun.

Just when the sun is starting to be high enough in the mornings and evenings that we can safely drive, we go and set the clocks forward so that we have to go through another 4 weeks or so of the sun rising & setting in our eyes again.

Yeah, we have shades but when the sun is low enough, we can't pull those down without blocking our sight several blocks ahead in traffic and without cutting the traffic lights from view.

It's all good.
What's a couple of months a year of blindness, followed by decades of cataracts later in life caused by that direct exposure?
At least I have a job!

Hey, speaking of "at least we haves"...

Send your prayers and positive thoughts to our families and friends in Japan, Hawaii and along the our Western Coast.
8.9 (possibly 9.0) earthquake in Japan followed by more than 90 aftershocks, a completely separate 6.9 earthquake following those and a 30 foot tsunami that translated into high water/waves in Hawaii and millions in damages to California.
So far more than 300 dead in Japan and so much damage that it's being compared to "Japan, 1945"

Welcome to the weekend.
Welcome to Daylight Savings.

As Always, "Welcome aboard, find your seats, set your clocks, send your prayers - Let's Roll!"
