Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Idle Thought About Upcoming Daylight Savings Time

Posted 03-02-2019 at 08:18 PM by case44


Bizarre happenings are sometimes just a part of life as we know it. If it's going to happen, then it will. I'm pretty sure that some things that can only happen in dreams couldn't possibly take place in real life.

But let's just say, for grins, that with the upcoming Daylight Savings Time, which commences in a week, some type of event were to take place at a weird time. That weird time won't happen until November, when Daylight time will end. The time change takes place at 2 a.m. Next week, we lose an hour. That means that at 2 o'clock, it skips to 3 o'clock. There is no 2 o'clock hour next Sunday morning. Funny how time does work.

Fast forward to November, when we fall back (in the parlance of adjustments) and gain the lost hour. When we get to 2 a.m., we switch back to 1 a.m. It would be 1 o'clock all over again. Follow that? Here's the scenario I tried to set up for you: What if a major event were to occur, and it took place at 1:46 a.m. that morning? The big question would be this: Which 1 o'clock hour did it happen in?? You'd have to only wonder that, when anything happens at 1:46 on the morning of returning to standard time from daylight, and you wake up later that morning to find out what happened at 1:46, that's the one time of the year when you ask, 'Which 1 o'clock hour did this thing happen?'

Ahh, the eternal questions. Did I not tell you that bizarre things really are, from time to time, a part of our lives? Chances likely are, if you don't experience it in real life, then you might see some such event in a dream.
