In 1964, I was living in Juneau and working for the Alaska Communication System (ACS) at the Lena Point Station, 18 miles north of town. On Good Friday, March 27, a couple of friends and I went out to dinner at a nice restaurant. After the meal, we went back to their apartment.

At least up here in Southcentral Alaska, we reached 11 hours of daylight on March 7. Two days after that, Daylight Saving Time returned across the state. I'm totally down with the 11 hours of daylight (and there's more to come), but Daylight Saving Time never made any sense to me. I guess I can just chalk it up to more beer drinking in the daylight as we slowly transition from winter into what's bound to be a long, sloppy spring.
