Tempora Inconstans

Del spent a spring break at a college chum's home. This was a dairy farm. It was the weekend of the change to Daylight Savings Time. The Farmer was moderately annoyed by it.

"The cows don't like it. The hour delay in milking is painful for them."

So he spread the change over four days, a quarter hour each day.

Del approved. He also noted that the problem didn't occur in the fall since then the cows were milked an hour early, but only once.
