For weeks I kept thinking that it seemed like my alarm clock was farther and farther ahead each day. I have finally figured out that it is! We have four clocks in the house. Three of them are digital electric and one runs on batteries. The three that plug in gain about a minute every two or three days, sometimes more, sometimes less. I usually set my alarm clock 15 minutes fast and right now it's 38 minutes fast. I dont think I ever noticed this before because every few weeks we would have a power outage and I would have to reset all the clocks, but we havent had a power outage for months now. The only reason I can think of to explain the clocks jumping ahead is that we have power surges. As to why we have power surges...I have no clue, but it must be happening. How frequent and intense the power surge, the farther it makes that clocks jump ahead? Does this make sense?
Does anyone else have any explanation for all of the clocks gaining time? I'd really love to hear your thoughts, it's really kind of strange. I've never heard of clocks gaining time before. Have you?
