Wednesday, February 6
It's the time of year once again when cold, clear winter skies and the rotation of the earth can sometimes combine for a blinding westbound evening commute on westbound Lancaster Ave. This was how it looked a few minutes after 5 p.m. Wednesday for drivers heading past the Devon Horse Show grounds on Lancaster Ave./Route 30 in Devon. Wednesday's official sunset was at 5:27:55 according to Unitarium.com. Thursday's sunset will be at 5:29:07 p.m.. As the sunlit hours keep getting longer, the sun will to be right in the eyes of westbound evening commuters for at least a few more weeks. Sunset starts to happen after 6 p.m. on March 9, according to a calendar on timeanddate.com. Are you excited to see days get longer or do you prefer winter …

For some, the first day of standard time can be a tough adjustment. How about you?
Sunday's sunrise came at 6:37 a.m., one hour earlier than Saturday morning, as the eastern United States went back to standard time. That means sunset will come an hour earlier. According to the NOAA website official sunset in Paoli is at 4:54 p.m. Sunday night with twilight lasting until 5:23 p.m.. For some people the shift in from daylight saving time to standard time can be a tough adjustments as commutes home are now going to be in the dark. For others, the earlier sunrise makes getting up and getting going easier. Which do you prefer - more sun in the morning or in the afternoon? Tell us in the comments section.
