Easier to read numbers rather than the clock hands. The smaller one can sometimes appear between numbers.

Pure laziness. If I can save a micro-second of work for my frazzled brain, I will!

If it is 3:50, for example, and the hour hand is too close to the 4, I may accidentally read it as 4:50. I have accidentally clocked out late or early, at work because of that. Digital is preferrable.

Quicker to read, especially if you need the exact minute.

It really does not matter to me. I prefer the one that has the correct time.

Analog clocks show you the entire sweep of the day in a single quick view - with your approximate current position in that sweep also indicated. So much more human!

I like the visual an analog clock provides.

I like them both. But the feeling and smell of paper.

It doesn't matter to me. However, I prefer an analog quartz watch powered by solar energy.

Nothing specific yet, but we had European plans in Spring 2020 derailed by the pandemic and one of these days we'll start planning again. So many places we have not been!

But I wish I were. Never been happier than when visiting Europe. most of all France. Museums and restaurants are my passions, but beyond those, every town, city, village, and region we've visited in France was thrilling and beautiful. I like to say: "I love the me I find waiting in NYC and France."

There is plenty I haven't seen in my own state and surrounding. I can't afford afford to see Denmark, Scotland, or Australia. I would be lucky to see Hawai'i and/or Alaska.

It can be humid in March, but ask folks suffering in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere how they're doing with this summer's heat waves.

People with COPD can't breath when humidity is high. If it's just hot and below twenty percent humidity, it's easier to breath
