    I don't know about everyone else but I have a "real" job (self-owned business) that I work 10 hours a day. Now that we're back to "Standard" time it's dark at 5-6PM. I'm not even out of work at that time. With children going to school and normal morning routines and darkness after 5PM where do you find time to work in your gardens and coops and yards? Sure does take up time on the weekends. Looks like I need to install portable lights in the back yard to work. Grrrr. When does DST come back?

    Bummer. I know my neighbor works full time and then after hours does lawn mowing. Well now it's too dark after he is off work. He can only mow on weekends or days off.

    Have you tried those headlamps. or led work lights?
