If anyone needs daylight past 9:30 p.m. they can move to Alaska or Iceland! I like going to bed when it gets dark outside, and I can't wait for earlier daylight, warmer weather, and feeling like I'm coming back to life! LOL

It makes no sense anymore. It's a 24/7 world. I'd sooner see us stay on standard time all year long. That way when the sun is directly overhead it IS noon. I see no problem with the sun coming up at 5:30. On the longest day of the year the sun would rise at 5:25 and set at 8:31. Do we really need it to be daylight at 9:30pm?!?!?

I heard some stats this week apparently there are more heart attacks and strokes the first week after the time change, it costs ofver 480 billion dollars in lost productivity across the US and it costs the average citizen $3.82. I don't know if any of that is true, but there are supposed to be 10 people in our section of the office -- the work day started 35 minutes ago and 3 of us are here.
