Clocks spring forward
Positively spring-like in Chicago today but we won't be here to bask in it as we go to New York tonight for the weekend, not to babysit the newest Addick
unfortunately, although if the boys were playing tomorrow I'm sure I would be enjoying a plate of waffles with his Dad
. We're there to visit friends who are currently living there from England.
The warmer weather coincides with the clocks going forward on Sunday, which is 3 weeks earlier than usual
in an effort by the government to combat the growing energy problems. Of course more renewable energy and less Hummer's might work as well. Daylight Savings Time as it is known in the States does not apply to parts of Arizona, for reasons not clear but it will mean for the next two weeks that the UK will be 5 hours ahead of Chicago and not 6.
