Fall is in the air!

Color is creeping into the trees and shrubs at the gate. The cooler temps are nice but I sure don't like this time change! The sun goes down so early there is no time to play with the animals in the evening.

Did ya know? Daylight-saving time was started during World War I to save oil and other energy resources needed for the war. It was used again in WWII, then became a law in 1966. Only a few states and regions don't follow it.

With an extra hour of daylight after dinner in the summer, people don't need to use their lights as long, so they waste less electricity and that saves energy. Seems we would make up for it in the winter...
