I don't want to say that George W. Bush is responsible for ALL the societal ills currently plaguing us (after all, there was Ronald Reagan in the mix, too) but increasing the Daylight Savings Time period has to rate pretty high when it comes to creating more misery than necessary.
Just as we are waking up, *thrilled* to see that it's light outside instead of pitch black, we are being plunged back into The Dark Ages.
This winter has been hard enough! Here are illustrations of the four ice storms....
To the left is my fig tree, which I pray is not frozen back to its roots (thanks to its protected location.)
The fourth ice storm was, frankly, superfluous. All the trees that were going to break were already down. The schools had already changed the calendar and extended well into June to make up the lost academic instructional days.
I think the message here is: we are all tired of Winter and ready for Spring!
