April Showers

April 5, 2006 | Leave a Comment

So much for the 80 degree temperatures last week. This morning it was snowing when I was leaving the house. So much for Spring…Meanwhile, although I did wake up in the middle of the night, it wasn’t quite at 01:02am… I guess I missed this article from the WSJ :

If you happen to be awake at 1:02:03 a.m. ET on Wednesday, April 5, you might want to reflect on how rare that particular moment is. Or you might just want to get some sleep. On some digital clocks in the U.S., that precise second will be reflected as 01-02-03-04-05-06, something that doesn’t happen all that often. If you want to celebrate the moment at a more reasonable hour, you can use Universal Time; 1:02 a.m. Universal Time comes at 9:02 p.m. ET. In any event, numerologists aren’t getting worked up about this moment, noting that the year is really 2006, not “06”, throwing off the neat progression of numbers.

Of course, as a European, I get another chance to wake up at 01:02am on the 4th of May. Or I could just stay asleep…If you want to wait a year, we’ll hit 02:03:04 05/06/07. But, you must admit, that’s not as cool as 01 02 03 04 05 06.

Or, just wait 2 months for 06:06:06 06/06/06 or another year for 07:07:07 07/07/07.

OK, it’s a very slow news day. (Thanks, Jeff L)
