Re: Quiet today

But if it's a bright day, as it is here, you won't have to turn the lights
on until an hour later this evening.  I'm surprised that you needed
lights until 8:30 this morning.  The sun was in our eyes as we left
for church at 7:30 this morning, and I thought our days were shorter 
than yours until the equinox.  I don't mind getting up early, and I
really enjoy the longer evenings.
Lots of trees down and power outages around here, though we 
escaped this time.  We had to make a detour on our way to church,
and the power was out there, so we all huddled together for a short
service in the cold.

All day--since about 4:30 this AM--I've been holding my breath, waiting 
for a consensus to develop about this earlier-than-usual DST. But there 
doesn't seem to be one. When I got up, I turned on the lights, the 
computer, the TV, and [of course] the heater. The sun finally came up 
at 7:30 so I could dowse some of the lights by 8:30 when it was finally 
daylight and the skylight began to dispel some of the gloom. So, in 
all, I used some pretty intense electricity for 4 hours this morning. I 
think those Santa Barbara researchers are probably right. DSL is likely 
a loser.
