My God. The most important thing to happen in Indiana in more than 30 years, and I missed it. When you went to bed Saturday night, you set your clock back an hour to finally participate in daylight-saving time (or else you got around to it sometime Sunday):
Before the clock change, sunrise Saturday in Indianapolis is projected at 8:09 a.m. and sunset at 6:47 p.m. Sunrise on Sunday will be 7:10 a.m., and sunset at 5:46 p.m.
Sally Brodkorb of Upland, about halfway between Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, will miss the extra evening daylight.
"I just liked it being light out later in the evening when you could get some more done outside like yard work," she said.
At the Village Clock Shop in Zionsville, the change will be time-consuming, said owner Julie Brogden. She has 60 to 70 running clocks on display that will need their hour hands moved back.
At the time of the big fall back, I was in Texas, which is an hour behind us (and, thanks to us adopting DST, will now always be an hour behind us). So I had set my watch back an hour when I got to Texas last Saturday. So, on Saturday night, all I had to do was leave my watch alone when my brother in Texas set all HIS clocks back an hour, which took a little bit of self-control, I’ll admit. Then, all I had to do was keep adding an hour to the airline schedule on the way home on Sunday, since we were really flying on Texas time.
This is all so confusing. I think I have it all straightend out now, except for one thing. It sure got dark early in Indianapolis Sunday night. What was that all about?
