Daylight Savings Time Rocks

Sunset is Yet to Occur!

In addition to it still being bright out when I get home now, the roads are also less crowded, by a significant factor. Although, this clearing will likely only be temporary, until the people who left early to celebrate return to leaving at their normal time, and the people who hate DST/were confused/didn’t notice it was time to leave work yet case the sun was still up, start leaving at the correct, earlier time.

This time of year people of all sorts complain and gripe about daylight savings time in all manner of locations. Probably every forum on the internet has an off-topic gripe thread about DST right about now. Except for those were such a thread is on topic, such as the people in charge of the network time protocol and patching Linux distros with up to date DST rule sets; where I imagine the griping goes on year round. But not here, this is a thread for celebrating the arrival of daylight savings time!

Actually, I’d much rather DST not exist, and we just declare our whole country to be one time zone to the east year round. But then there wouldn’t be a time of year when people complain, which would mean no me laughing at them. Also, I’d miss out on the traffic light drive home. Small prices to pay for declaring ourselves to be in the middle of the Atlantic.
