Today is My Least Favorite Day of the Year November 4, 2013

Pitch Black Darkness

I hate when daylight saving time ends — and the Monday after it does is my least favorite day of the year.

I’m tired, just like everyone’s tired, because the extra hour of sleep we received Sunday morning just meant I stayed up later last night.

While the fact it finally was light at 7 a.m. again this morning was welcome, it came with a trade off — the photo above is what it looked like at 5:30 p.m. today outside my office window.

(Perhaps a rough approximation.)

For now the days will still keep getting shorter and it will keep getting darker earlier and earlier until Dec. 21. That’s seven more weeks of progressive darkness. Ugh.

And, to top off all the darkness and approaching winter, baseball is now done — although that does give me more free time to start reading the stack of baseball books that are my off-season project.

But that can be for another night.

For this one, when it feels like it’s been night for about 12 hours so far, sleep sounds like a much better option.
