Saving Daylight: Stillwaters Style!

Saving Daylight: Stillwaters Style!

Daylight saving time is this weekend – are you ready?  Here are a few reasons to love daylight savingClock time in Stillwaters.

  • This is such a great walking neighborhood and with extra daylight this means more evening walkers seen strolling the neighborhood.
  • Gardeners in the neighborhood are coming alive with all the extra sunshine.  Extra hours of daylight in the afternoon means more hours to till the soil and visit with your gardening neighbors.
  • Evening driving – for those of us who have trouble driving after dark, daylight saving time provides extra hours of daylight that invite us to go to movies, attend potluck night or go for a drive in the evening and enjoy the beautiful countryside around Stillwaters.
  •  Seeing more of your neighbors is another reason.  This time of year begins the “patio-sitting, porch-perching and sidewalk chatting that this neighborhood is famous for.

  1. Officially, it’s “daylight saving time,” not “daylight savings time.”  But don’t feel bad if you thought there was a final “s” on saving; more people Google the incorrect phrase than the correct one.
  2. Two states do not observe daylight saving time: Hawaii and Arizona.
  3. Daylight saving time was first used during World War I, as part of an effort in the United States and other warring countries to conserve fuel.

Don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead this Saturday (Spring Forward, Fall Back).
