Sunrise from the grounds of Old Rochester Regional High School on March 10.
Arguments continue over whether DST kills or saves more lives, as well as its benefits to business, energy use, etc.
I am not by nature an early riser, and I have felt jet-lagged and tired all week, but I do like having light later in the day. After a late day at school, I was able to walk a mile with the dogs in bright sunlight--first time in at least a month with all the snow we've had. Good riddance, dark days of December and January.
Having said that, I find it strange to have the sun reach its highest point more than an hour before noon. I wouldn't mind simply agreeing to do everything an hour earlier, but it bugs me that the clock and sun are so misaligned.
