... When daylight savings time ends! At least in America.

It'll be good to sleep in another hour. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I much prefer daylight savings time. It is good to get outside after work and play golf or other sports. In Britain, during WW2, they had double summer time and it was great.

That would be the US Congress when they passed the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

If pro is good and con is bad, is congress the opposite of progress?

I wonder how much all the extra daylight during summer hours is contributing to global warming.

I'm glad they don't change the time in Arizona, It's hot enough during the summer without another hour of daylight!

Same here. I can't drive at night. My VA appointments are first thing in the morning. I have to wait till it gets light enough before I leave. Now it won't be a problem.
