Quote from: mikeylikey on March 08, 2008, 03:50:35 PMWhen I lived in Indiana, there was no Daylight Savings Time, no changing clocks twice a year. We got along just fine with everyone else also! However, I look forward to gaining an hour of immediate sunlight at the end of the day! Doesn't everyone???

With daylight savings 0540 is still plenty early for that sun to "brighten" my day.
Quote from: jayburns22 on March 09, 2008, 03:45:22 AMI would be cautious about trusting wikipedia for precise energy savings estimates...don't get me wrong, it's a great resource, but the fact that the author isn't held accountable for what he or she writes makes it not a reliable source of information, to me.I don't know why people get in such a fuss about Daylight Savings time. I personally love having the extra hours of daylight to get things accomplished, and I would propose that despite our shared despise towards politicians, if Congress collectively thought it was worth the investment (again), then I would venture to say it probably is. I live 8 miles for another time zone and frequently travel into it, so time change doesn't bother me.
