The Week Ahead: Friday, November 4 through Thursday, November 10, 2016
November 4, 2016
Those of us who live on the Island and those who will be visiting in the Week Ahead continue to revel in the mild temperatures coupled with the russets, golds and oranges of autumn silhouetted against the slate green seas. But reality reasserts at 2am on Sunday, November 6 as the end of daylight savings time – an inarguable sign of the winter ahead – requires that we set our clocks back one hour. While a sunny wake-up will be welcomed, the earlier approach of darkness at day’s end …not so much. That said, there’s lots to going on at all hours during the Week Ahead! Enjoy!
