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”.
