Spring forward, fall back

The subject at issue this morning is: would I already have been awake for over an hour this morning (and it's still not 8am) if it wasn't for the fact that the clocks went back an hour last night? Maybe for you it's different, but for me it's a definite 'no'! So today signals the real beginning of the winter season. It may be lighter this morning at this time than we have grown used to over the past few weeks, but that won't last long - by mid-December in this part of Scotland daylight won't really begin until not long before 10am. However, I can console myself by thinking that Spring is only 5-6 months away. Have a good day!
