Daylight Savings Time

At least a couple of decades ago, a woman at the community center observed that the extra hour of daylight in the evening gained from the switch to daylight savings time is not enjoyed on the first day because it almost always rains.  We comment on this every year.  This year was typical with heavy rain throughout the entire day and evening.

Okay, this will not earn us a Nobel prize, but it is a fun way to reconnect.  After the first day of daylight saving, we seek each other out and hoot from across the parking lot or in the fitness center, “See!  See!  It always works!”  (Of course, it doesn’t always, but then we can say something like, “There you go; the exception proves the rule!”)  We instinctively know what is meant.
