What's an hour worth to you?
The concept of time is just as subjective as the concept of flavour... or the concept of what good music is.
We’ve all got our own ideas and we’ve all got a date with a changing clock this Saturday night.
The fact that some folks don’t think it’s a big deal only goes to illustrate the point made above.
What’s widely accepted is that one hour makes a pretty extreme difference across the board. It’s like the difference in one or two degrees spelling the difference between a bumper crop and a famine.
Authorities will likely report a spike in car accidents during morning commutes following Saturday night’s seasonal adjustment to our clocks.
People who study such things in extreme depth can estimate the dollars lost to society by way of eroded productivity thanks to that lost hour of shut-eye.
Some of us are not likely to lose too much sleep worrying about such things, we’re already consumed by enough critical points to ponder.
The main thing is that we’ve got more daylight with which to revel in the joy of West Kootenay living, and that more than makes up for an hour of lost wink-time.
Don’t think we won’t appreciate getting it back next fall, by then, we’ll need it.
