Well, here we are on the Monday after the clocks were set forward an hour. A lot of people starting their Monday a little groggier then their usual Monday morning grogginess.
Although, I must say, springing forward is a lot easier to do than falling back because when you have to fall back an hour, some of the digital clocks you have to set around the house need to spring forward 23 hours, when really you just want to set it back one hour.
Also, when they came up with this concept, why would they choose the middle of the weekend to have it occur? Why not spring forward Friday afternoon at 4pm? Then, you wouldn’t loose any sleep, plus you’d extend the weekend by an hour! Everyone wins!
Experts say it can take up to a week to adjust to the time change and the Monday after a time change, and they also note a higher rate of vehicle accidents particularly late afternoon, so take it easy on the drive home today. The last thing you want to have happen after a long Monday at work is to have to deal with a fender-bender on the way home. Go safe, and at least you won’t have to drive home in the dark.
