Timeless . . . set your clock on Sunday November 5, 2017
Daylight Savings Time was a bright idea.
On Sunday, November 5, Daylight Savings Time for 2017 comes to a close as we set our clocks back one hour. Aside from that glorious hour of sleep on Sunday morning, we also get an extra hour of daylight in the evenings as nights grow colder and days creep shorter.
Two years after the First World War, Daylight Savings Time was instituted to reduce energy costs, while increasing the length of the work day.
Flagging for winter
As winter approaches and days grow colder, we winter-proof our houses by double-checking the plumbing and turning up the heat. We cover our pools, winterize the boat and cars, and we plant our winter gardens. But let’s not forget to winterize our prized American flags. Fully sewn with locked stitched hems, Rugged Wavecrest Polyester Flags stand up against wind, sleet, snow, and freezing rain throughout the winter. Whether you are flying a 3’x5’ flag in front of your home or a large 30’x60’ flag in front of your school or office building, rest assured that the double spun and woven polyester fabric will catch the breeze and brilliantly display your proud patriotism day and night.
The Solar Light for Flagpoles (15'-25' high) collects solar energy during the day and stores it for up to 12 hours of nighttime flag illumination. No wiring and simple installation make this light the perfect option for showcasing your patriotism through Veteran’s Day and throughout the winter, by lighting up your flag. The powerful solar panels require no external electricity for up to twelve hours through the night, reducing energy costs.
