I hate to admit this but it wasn't until about five years ago that I finally got straight in my mind that you SPRING forward and FALL back.
I wish I could say I was a young pup, but alas and alack…nope.
I had it in my mind that life went in cycles: New Years, Valentines Day, Buzzard return to Hinckley, Oh in March on my Dad's birthday, Easter and then Daylight Savings time.
So I'm just in a tizzy over the early clock switching. For one thing, my folks will now be three hours apart in time instead of two because they are in Arizona – did you know they don't change their time?
For another thing, we still have about 9 inches of snow of the ground and Daylight Savings time was always the gateway to summer.
I figured that would be the extent of it and set my sights on enjoying the longer day until someone said: this will really mess up our computers and a flash of Y2K popped into my head.
I was working at Pearle Vision and as early as 1994 we started having special task force meetings about the impending doom Y2K would bring.
Do you remember that New Year's Eve? Did you prepare? We had bottles of water in the basement already for the end of the world. Looking back, it was rather silly. Now, there's an understatement.
And now again, technology will be impacted by the ticking of time.
