Thanks Daylight Savings Time

Hopefully, we all sprung ahead this past weekend to begin Dayllght Savings Time, and even though we lost an hour of sleep, by now we’ve made it up (although my father claimed that he lost an hour of sleep everynight until we returned to standard time). So how much more daylight did we gain?

According to “The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2013″:

On Saturday, March 9th, our last day of standard time (and my birthday), the sun rose at 6:05 a.m. and set at 5:43 p.m., giving us 11 hours and 38 minutes of daylight.

Today, on March 11th, now that we’re on Daylight Savings Time, the sun rose at 7:02 a.m. and will set at 6:46 p.m., giving us 11 hours and 44 minutes of daylight.

So we gain a little, but it feels like we gained a lot with the sun setting just a little before 7. Now there’s more time after work to get all of those outdoor chores done (Looks like I’ll be taking down the Christmas wreath on the front of our house tonight at 6:30)
