European Fans: Turn your clocks back

It's this time of the year again ... people in Europe have to turn their clocks and watches BACK an hour tonight, that means: the night will be an hour longer and we get a little more sleep. Whatever you are planning to do tonight: Have fun (or sleep well ).

Sigh. I woke up at 8 this morning, only to remember this whole turning back your clocks thing. So in fact I woke up at 7 on a Sunday morning. Well, there's a first time for everything..

^ I turned the clocks back yesterday before going to sleep and guess what: I woke up at seven, it was light out there and I thought it was at least 8. All this confusion twice a year.

^ Then the arrival time is within the "new" time, it's like flights over a couple of time zones, the arrival time is always the local time and the local time here means "winter time". It's the normal time minus one hour. Doesn't mean the trains go faster and the journey takes one hour less.

That's too complex for me! Seriously I don't know why we still should have this confusion twice a year.

Exactly Especially in the spring it's annoying when you "lose" an hour.

And most annoying thing is, that I'll find lots of watches/ clocks with the wrong time the next week!

Well I DID tell you yesterday evening, just after I had turned back all my own clocks. Thank God my computer can do this all alone.

It's such a long day already.
