I love DST for the longer days. When we fall back up until we spring forward, I'm always keeping track in the back of the mind of the time the sun sets each day. I feel I can relax now. :-°

Getting out of work at 5 and the sun is already set is so depressing. DST works for me.

Exactly.
I'll gladly lose an hour of sleep; if that means not driving to work before the sun rises and not driving from work after the sun sets. ;-D

Agreed. Nothing is worse than going to work and it's dark and getting out of work and it's dark again. And if I work through lunch, that means it's always dark and the sun doesn't exist M-F. X-I

You only get the second one with DST. The sun rises an hour later every morning so if you were driving to work around sunrise before, it's going to be even darker now.

you're being insensitive to our Cafe friends in Indiana and Arizona ;-7


Actually our new governor here in Indiana put us on DST, so we are now with the rest of the country :-B

im always up very very late into the night, so the sun coming up an hour earlier works for me. i love it still being sunny out at 8pm during the summer, reminds me of the days of stickball, football, and basketball all day long and still being able to see the ball AFTER eating dinner. ;-D
