America’s turn to twist its clocks back comes this Sunday, November 2. Europe, slightly more sensible, did it on October 25.
To put it at its simplest: from March to October we have been required by law to call One “Two,” and likewise for all the other hours.
I will no doubt give my full rant about this bureaucratic foolery when it resumes next March. From now till then (35 percent of the year), the Sun will actually be highest at midday, and lowest at midnight.
