Time To Fall Back

It’s that time of year again! Here’s a friendly neighbourhood reminder that before you go to bed tonight it’s time to turn back that clock an hour. Officially it gets rolled back at 2 AM Sunday morning. The exciting difference this year, or technically next (2007) is the fact that we’ll be springing forward our clocks sooner by 3 weeks.

Officially we’re setting our clocks forward on March 11, 2007 which is 3 weeks sooner than normal. BC is following the lead of the US. By turning our clocks forward early by 3 weeks there is a significant savings in energy consumption.

I think that’s great! Seeing that our province is quite well known for our Hydro PowerSmart program this further enhances our image of being conscious of our energy consuption.

Anyways everyone have a safe and fun weekend as there’s lots of Halloween events happening around town.

    I did enjoy the extra hour of sleep this morning. Sleeping in on a weekend is even better when you get up at a reasonable hour to enjoy the day.

    ah unfortunately i always think to myself i’m going to have an extra hour and end up sleeping extra late negating any extra sleep i might have obtained by the change in time.
