Driscoll: We Can End Daylight Savings
The Times- Standard's, John Driscoll, seems to have had enough of Daylight Savings Time. He suggests Humboldt County lead the revolution against it.
Myself? As I said yesterday, I'm not sure that it's isn't more trouble than it's worth. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about it this time as my attitude changes year by year.
I was looking forward to having the sun come up "earlier" but found, to some amusement yesterday, when it started getting lighter seemingly an hour earlier, I wanted it to stay dark longer. I like hiding in the darkness playing on my computer. Like I said, I can't do anything else until the sun comes up anyway.
As far as the sun going down earlier, I knew I probably wouldn't be happy about that. Yesterday, though, I didn't even notice when the sun went down.
So John, here's what we'll do: You set your clock back to where it was before Daylight Savings Time ended. Give that a try for a few months and get back to us. We'll see how it worked out for you. If it looks like a good deal, maybe the rest of us will follow suit and we'll have a revolution on our hands.
