Default Dummest statement ever........

I just heard some ground breaking news on the local news station(Ch. 6) ???????
The weather guy says that now that the time has changed the leaves on the trees will begin to turn faster because they don't have as much available sunlight..... Say what????? I wasn't even aware that trees had clocks.... Were any of you aware of this???????

You know the scary Mumbles, you possibly or others count on that guys word when they are planning on a day out fishing. That statement certainly falls under the bonehead category in my books.

Heh heh.

Though he could have meant that the time change simply signifies this time of the year when the days are getting shorter - not that the time change does anything.

Our locals don't seem to check out anything that they babble anymore. A couple of weeks ago I had an appointment downtown at 8:30, which means I need to leave my house by 7:30, under normal circumstances. I'm barely out of the driveway when I hear of a wreck on 85 that is on my intended route. I calculate an alternative course (which will make me late) and call the client to advise them of the situation. I finally arrive about 8:45, make my apologies and one of them informs me that the wreck was on another interstate altogether, 77 NOT 85 !!!!!!!! Maybe we should sue for disseminating false information??????? But I guess we would be suing all of the "news" stations....

The day is now 23 hours long per channel 6 news - I hope they took the hour out of my work day and not the lunch hour, either.

Well, it's a well known fact, once the clocks go back, all the fish sleep an hour late, and soon start packing for the winter migration.

I think they were all confused abit this year cuz the congress change the date for day light saving time.

Gee I dont understand why y'all are picking on the guy. Here's a helpful hint for the arborists out there. Use a Fahrenheit thermometer not a Celsius/Centigrade one. Your plants live longer at the higher temp's.
