Historic Amherst Town Hall at 6:07 this evening
A good excuse for being late just went out the window as the main town clock in the heart of downtown is now working properly, albeit a couple minutes slow.
Over a month ago during the blitzkrieg of snowstorms the clock stopped working but the panels facing north and south were quickly brought back to life.
The west facing clock looking into town center needed more work and Facilities Director Ron Bohonowicz told the Joint Capital Planning Committee last week he needed a warm day to remove the panel without fear of damaging it.
The clock speed I'm told is affected by the cold weather, as the grease is more solid and it slows down. But as the weather warms it will speed up. Changing the length of a pendulum adjusts for this speed change. The clock also needs winding every Thursday.
