I was a bit shocked this morning to arrive and have my computer tell me I was an hour early for work.
Then while out to lunch, I noticed that a few other electronic clock signs around town were also off by an hour.
Then I remembered, the time change is this coming weekend, not the past one. According to Fox News:
The move from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time doesn't happen this year until the first Sunday in November, instead of the usual last Sunday in October.
That means computer software, cellphones and other electronic equipment that is programmed to automatically change will have to be manually reset Monday morning back to Daylight Saving Time, then changed back one hour next Sunday.
President Bush in 2005 signed the Energy Conservation Act, which pushed back the time change in an effort to squeeze just a little more daylight -- and a bit of energy savings -- into the daily lives of Americans.
The legislation also changed the "spring forward" to Daylight Saving Time, which next year will be on March 9.
So, it is all Bush's fault! At least, in this case....
