Daylight Savings Started

Have you noticed the current time difference between Richmond, USA and Malaysia?

Previously the time difference was exactly 12 hours, but now, due to daylight savings, we have to set our clocks an hour backwards ... meaning we can have an extra hour to sleep tonight ... wee! So my time now is 13 hours slower than Kuala Lumpur's time.

Well, that isn't really a fun thing, though. That just means that the nights are getting longer, and shorter day time. During the shortest days of the year (which falls on Dec), the sun will set around 330-4pm, and will rise only around 8-830am. I remember I was so depressed the first year when I was in Canada because of such short day time. It's like you haven't done anything, yet it's already night time.

Fall is here, afterall.

How far will winter be?

Heh, there will be no more days like this. Not at least until next April.

It looks like the seasons and weather in Richmond is a lot like Portland, Oregon. Although I think Portland rains more during the colder seasons.

dennis, yeah, i think so too.

vagus, haha, i never thought about it that way until Tomato told me about that last night. Luckily his ED shift ended at 12pm ... May ppl who went on-call extra hour last night get that back during the first Sunday, next April.
