Sunrise, Sunset - Back On Schedule!

As I previously mentioned, Dayton OH is on the western edge of the Eastern Time Zone. In fact, it's possible to drive due south from Dayton and hit some parts of Tennessee and Kentucky (and probably Alabama and Florida) that are in the Central Time Zone.

That means the sunrises and sunsets are quite a bit later in Dayton than in Springfield. I really appreciate having earlier sunrises and sunsets, now that we're back on the eastern side of the Eastern Time Zone. I definitely notice the difference.

And the funny thing is, despite the late sunrise in Ohio, the kids school started at 7:45 (before sunrise for some days in December!). Here in Virginia, school will start at... 9am!
