Plan Ahead to Save That Daylight!

Apparently Middle Sister has the same kind of trouble I have in understanding the whole "gain an hour" concept. She just announced, "We're going to be getting out of school an hour earlier."

I figured she was talking about some kind of schedule change for the next school year, but she continued, "When it's Daylight Savings Time, we'll be getting out at 2:00 instead of 3:00."

I still haven't gotten my mind around the idea that at one point in the year you have the same hour twice in a row, and at another point in the year you skip it completely...and I will admit to obsessively checking the TV Guide to try to figure out where they take out the looks like the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
