    Exclamation 2008 Daylight Saving Time

    FYI Folks - This Sunday, March 9th at 2AM is the beginning of daylight savings time. Don't forget to Spring your Clocks ahead one hour!

    If you don't, who knows, you might be late for a very important date! Seems a lot earlier this year and actually is compared to 2004, 5 & 6.

    Lois the best part is the sun will be up longer in the warmer time of day. These means a lot more snow melting.

    I don't know. Is this a good thing?

    Doesn't it mean that "mud" season is starting?

    Perhaps keeping winter and snow all year would be better.

    I don't know if this is the "best" thing for us snow lovers . . . but I know my wife is definitely ready for Spring.

    Yes! We drove on some dirt roads today, and it was either ice, slush or mud! NASTY!!!

    We like the fact that it will be lighter later in the day, when we are awake.

    So how much day light can we save and where can we go get some more?

    Placed my first cache in snow, have to clean it ALL THE TIME,
    When it melts, I have to walk on planks to come into the house or it ruins the grass.
    I have to get stock for the bug dope people beacuse I spend so much buying repellent.
    So, my fine caching commrads .........

    GIVE ME THE FALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Default Change your clock, Change your battery

    Don't forget when you "spring ahead" to put a fresh battery in your smoke detectors.
    If you want to try cross country skiing, start with a small country
