Time to Fall Back.

It is THAT time of year. Turning the clicks back one hour.

School children waiting for the bus will no longer be waiting in the dark on a corner. Play time after school will be curtailed earlier than has been because it will be getting dark sooner in the evening.

We are having to find a hotel earlier now. Shutting down before 5:00 p.m. because we don’t, normally, have good headlights on these used trucks.

During spring and summer we don’t have to get off the road so early and are still out past 7:00 p.m.

How many clocks do you have to change this time of year? Microwave, stove, wall clocks, wrist watches, mantle clocks, bedside clocks, cuckoo clocks?

How does the time change affect you and your family?

I am an over the road truck driver in Drive-Away Transport part of the year, and the sole bookkeeper of this operation the other part of the year. I do a lot of whining until I can get in my craft room and play with paper and glue. View all posts by Message In A Fold

    I hate this whole business of the clocks going back and forth. Our clocks went back at the end of October and the nights are rapidly drawing in now it catches me out at times.
    Katie (the dog) hasn’t realised the clocks have changed and is whining for her food at around 7 pm whereas she normally has her food around 8.30 pm..according to her tummy clock it is food time whatever the damn clock says 🙂

    How many timepieces do we have to change? We both have 2 wristwatches each, then there are two clocks downstairs plus the alarm clock upstairs and the mobile phone (ours doesn’t change automatically) and that is it for us! We don’t bother to change the clock in the car and the computers change automatically.

    Love and hugs and keep safe

      This whole time change stuff is plumb a$$ crazy. I don’t understand the reasoning for it, other than for me to get really sore fingertips twice a year trying to set my wrist watch forward or back. I never seem to remember the sequence until my fingers hurt really bad. Maybe I should just invest in a watch that has to be wound up daily. Pull the stem to change the time 🙂

      When I get home I’ll have about 8 appliances to change plus the alarm clock. Crazy business it all is.

      Love you – Leslie
