... arrival time at the hotel tonight is 8:45 Maine time, which is really 10:45 at home with the clocks ahead an hour and the additional hour lost tomorrow. At least we will have an extra hour of daylight in the evening now, which means spring is that much closer. We arrived at our last overnight hotel here in Portland just before 9:00.
