Three days into daylight savings time, but instead of ranting about the harm this does to our circadian rhythm, let’s shake it off with a quick little ride in the countryside outside of Albany.
As I did on Tuesday:
If you have an old bike in the garage, now’s the time to dust it off and pump up the tires and take it out for a spin around the block, or through the neighborhood, or maybe even outside the city limits.
The added hour of daylight at the end of the day is a bonus. The video above, though, was made on Tuesday afternoon and had nothing to do daylight savings time.
As for the time switch last Sunday, though, what’s up with that? By now, according to a vote in the legislature a couple of years ago, we should be either on standard time all year, or one hour ahead of standard time.
But that return to good sense concerning the time would have required similar action in California and Washington, as well as the consent of Congress.
No surprise, then, that nothing has happened. We keep electing more or less the same members of the House and Senate. But who actually expects them to solve a problem, even a simple one like getting rid of changing the clocks twice a year? (hh)
