MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

It’s That Time Again ! …


Time to change the clocks again at 2 a.m. today from Standard time to Daylight Savings time, and therein lies my teeny, personal gripe!

According to the dictionary the definitions of standard are: normal, accepted, definitive, and official to name a few. I bring this up because today Sunday, March 10, 2019 is the beginning of Daylight Savings Time.

I’m one of those rare people who like it when it gets dark early. I like long evenings when you can be cozy and comfy… not that you can’t do that when it’s light out but it seems somehow more cozy when it’s dark. I know there are some others out there that agree with me but somehow when we mention this preference we get looks of disbelief. I’m not saying that I don’t enjoy an evening stroll, I’m not totally a hermit… I have been known to actually be outside after supper and enjoyed it.

I Googled ‘what do you call someone who likes the dark‘ and  of course got ‘vampire’…but lo and behold there is a word for those of us who do like early darkness better, it’s..

nyctophilia  nyc·to·phil·i·a (nĭk’tə-fĭl’ē-ə)
 A preference for the night or darkness.

I guess in the scheme of things it doesn’t matter…time is what it is, and as for me, I’m always….

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. I hear you loud and clear! 🙂 Not so much a nyctophile myself but I do wish they’d stop this back-and-forth with the clocks which is totally useless!

  2. Agreed. Plus now it’s dark in the morning when it’s hard enough to get up when it’s bright 🙂

  3. I dont like it dark in the morning and I wish they stop with the time change every six months. Messes me up!

  4. I believe what you wrote made a great deal of sense.
    But, think about this, what if you added a little information? I am not
    suggesting your content isn’t solid, however suppose you added
    a post title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean It’s That Time Again !
    … | MV Obsession is a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post headlines to grab people to
    open the links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more

  5. as a truckdriver, changing the clock meant that one day of the year my log page totaled 23 hours and one day 25….. imagine when D.O.T. looks at mine/my husband’s logbooks on the day we fall back…..i stopped driving at 3am, move my clock back, then my husband gets up and starts driving at 2 am!!!!! he just handed them back and told us to have a nice day!!!! the worst is trying to explain DST to the dogs!!!!! hahahahahahaha….can’t tell time, but know when it’s dinner!!!
