Another annual switch from Daylight Savings Time, to Standard Time is behind us. In theory we were supposed to get an additional hour of sleep overnight Saturday night that we’d lost this past spring when clocks were moved forward one hour. That’s true, unless you have a dog or cat who doesn’t know how to tell time. Their need to go outside or eat breakfast is not controlled by our clocks and so Sunday started an hour earlier than it might have for service dog and pet owners like me. In my case it will take a couple of days until my guide dog Pippa stops whining at what will now be 12:25 a.m. but she’ll get used to the new time as I will. I’ve read conflicting stories on how daylight savings time ever became a reality. One is that the captains of industry and members of congress conspired to order the switch to Daylight Savings Time each spring to give them time to play golf after work. Another is that Congress wanted to give workers in World War II era factories time to enjoy nice weather when their long work day was through. I’m betting it was the first reason that what they used to call “fast time” has been a reality for 8 decades. Ohio lawmakers will soon consider a proposal to make Daylight Savings Time a year-round reality in Ohio. However, even if they pass such a bill Congress will have to agree to it and they’re kind of busy right now so they would have us believe. That’s the way I see it.
