    It's not even 5 pm yet, but it's almost full dark [​IMG] Who are they saving the daylight for anyway? It's surely not helping me any! [​IMG]

    I thought daylight savings time ended and now we're back to standard time.

    Whichever way it works, it stinks! I wish they'd just leave it alone, that would be so much better!

    I completely agree!!! [​IMG] I have to say, we made it to 6 PM here (Southern Indiana), and the last of the pink glow is fading away. We're up in the hills, so I'm sure the folks in the valley are already in the dark. It bites!!

    Standard time (what it is now) is the way it's supposed to be. Daylight saving time is the "man-made" time. So getting dark this early is the "normal".

    I know .. by the time I get to the property in the evening now, it'll almost be too dark to let the kids out to play .. *pout*

    I think I'll ask my boss if I can come in an hour early so I can still leave before the sun sets ..... for the chickens ... I'm sure he'll understand.
