Light Envy

I haven't been in the South for the fall time change in well over 20 years. Last Sunday afternoon, I was desperate to get my mother and sister away from the sale rack at Dillard's so that I could get home and take my laundry in. I had to pack and I didn't want damp clothes.

My mother and sister casually strolled out of the store, not understanding what had me so upset. As I walked outside well past 6 p.m. and saw daylight, they laughed at my amazement. I started to think I was a little nuts because I expected it to be dark so early.

It wasn't until I returned to L.A. and realized that here, it does get dark way too early after the time change. By 5:15, it's very dark.

No wonder I have such issues fighting my dark mood this time of year. It gets dark more than a hour earlier here!

maybe it's Daylight Savings Time? or does it get dark early year-round there?

Here, it's tough when it starts getting dark around 4:00 in the winter. And in my area, it's cloudy more often than not, and I have a hard time getting my get-up-and-go going when it's cloudy and gloomy out. I've often considered getting one of those lamps, but I'm not sure it's worth the expense.

Janet, No, they have more daylight being further south.

I'm the same way with cloudy, gloomy days...I just want to sleep!
