I know it’s only an hour, but I truly despise Daylight Savings Time. Most of my clocks adjust automatically, but that’s not the point. For the third year in a row, I didn’t realize the clocks rolled forward and I started woodworking before quiet hours ended. I’m an early riser, so this morning, I was woodworking audibly while everyone was still sleeping it off. I didn’t get a noise complaint this time, but that’s also not the point. I’ll say it: Daylight Savings Time is stupid in 21st Century society.
I would like to point out that it was the Germans and Austrians during World War I who first implemented Daylight Savings Time as a way to conserve coal during wartime. And that it was OPEC who forced America to permanently implement Daylight Savings Time during the 1970’s.
Not exact a positive pedigree for a concept.
