D is for dilemma

I was  going to post about the end of Daylight Savings Time in the United States but found the information confusing.  There were various reasons for DST ranging from energy savings to an increase of leisure evening activities as well as driving safety.  There are many more, too.


My confusion is that if we DST lasts for more than six months, why is Standard Time the standard?  In the U.S. DST begins the second weekend in March and lasts until the first weekend in November.

That’s eight months!

And confusing.


So my post for today is about “do”.

  1. I DO remember most of those… I don’t understand about changing the time, either. I wish we would just pick one and stick with it. I heard a piece on NPR the other night – that when we fall back, personal crime increases – they think because it is dark when people are out moving around, going home from work, etc. But, of course, they worry about morning traffic accidents if it is dark then. How about we leave the clocks alone, and just adjust our lives so we are not out in the dark? 🙂


  2. I was just studying that picture of all the clocks and noticed that not one of them is at 5:00. I thought it was always 5:00 somewhere???


Your thoughts? I read them all.
