Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

Spring is Here

  • Print

The season where the days are longer. Tonight, I could see sun in the sky long past 7 p.m. How wonderful. Spring has definitely sprung.

There's something about more daylight that makes me feel more alive, and more energetic. Don't you feel like you get more done when it is lighter outside? It's probably mental, but as soon as it gets dark, I sort of want to just shut down. (Smiles)

But now with the extra hour of sunlight, I can think of so much more I want to get done. Interestingly enough, a study by the U.S. Department of Energy shows that the extra hour doesn't just really help increase businesses for stores, but it does save energy. Enough to power 122,000 homes for a year.

Pretty impressive. Add that to millions of people feeling more pep and vigor, and we have a sea of positive people. Happy Spring!!!
