Springing is one thing cats do well, so I am more than ready to spring into Daylight Saving Time this coming weekend. DST starts at 2 am on Sunday, March 8, so be sure to set your clock ahead one hour when you go to bed on Saturday night. Now if I can only see over the snowbanks by the time spring arrives, in just two weeks. I sense snowdrops and crocus crying out from beneath the mounds of snow.
