    For those in the US: don't forget to set your clocks back an hour Saturday night before you go to bed.

    "The practice was formally implemented during World War I, when countries at war started setting their clocks back to save on coal. Daylight Saving was repealed during peacetime, and then revived again during World War II. More than 70 countries currently practice Daylight Saving Time, because they think it saves money on electricity (in the U.S., Arizona and Hawaii have opted out)."

    I love it. The reason is the clocks then more closely reflect the hours we're awake. The sun is up when we wake and generally sets in late evening. More hours outside.

    I prefer standard time (that we're going into) vice DST. this fall back is much welcomed.

    I'm much more a daylight savings time kinda guy. The only thing positive about standard time to me,is the additional light in the morning, but a reminder of winter with darkness coming by 6:00 p.m. (and sooner before long). Give me the evening light anytime!

    I agree 100% about evenings being lighter. The sad thing is that during December and January it will be dark when you get up in the morning and then dark when you get out of work.

    Same here when I can but the heater thermostat, stove, little kitchen timer that also has a clock, and possibly the porch light switch will need setting. My bedside alarm and indoor/outdoor thermometer use WWV.

    The porch light switch is cool. You tell it your lat and lon and it turns on the porch light at sundown, with any delay you might like, and you set it to turn it off whenever you want. Honeywell.

    It's time to get rid of DLST and give the daylight hour to the evening and not the morning. Why you ask? Because it give criminals that prefer to operate at night 1 less hour of night and they are too lazy to get up in morning.
