Late Winter Daylight
Is it just me, or does our switch over to Daylight Savings come too early these days? Everyone I've talked with the past couple of weeks was really enjoying waking up to daylight...and now here we are waking up in the dark, again. Meanwhile, blizzards are still raging from Driggs to Minnesota, and the fact that it's light until nearly 8 p.m. just doesn't seem right. I liked the old timing better: start Daylight Savings at the end of March, when spring was more of a reality...and end it the third week in October. Call me traditional.
Moving on, apologies for slacking on the blog lately. It's a strange in-between time of year for me: no tradeshows, the R.U. Outside winter season winding down, no sign of spring...plus the economy going down like the Titanic. It's all combined to put me in a funk, and as a result I haven't been out getting my usual adventure quota. I'm vowing to rebound, starting with a snowmobile ride w/friends in the Big Holes tomorrow and then the West Yellowstone Expo (& fun) this weekend. We'll then be into college basketball's March Madness, which is always a riot. I will be on my game for that...count on it.
