Last post of Summertime ...

The clocks go back one hour here in Greece at 4am ...

Greek Reporter
Get prepared for an extra an hour of sleep this Sunday, as in the overnight hours of October 27–28 clocks will go back one hour. The switch from daylight saving time (DST) will take place officially at 3am on Sunday morning, but it’s best to change the clocks before you go to bed.

The time arrangement is followed by all European countries with the exception of Iceland.
Winter time will revert back to summer time on the last Sunday of March 2012.

    As far south as I live in Norway, the sun never disappears totally (expect behind the thick clouds). Today the clouds are so low and thick, that I clearly understand my ancestors only fear: that the sky would fall onto their heads.
