This morning I took the dogs outside for their walk at 7:30 so I'd have time to take a shower and get dressed before leaving at 8:30. It was dark outside which reminded me to do my annual Daylight Savings Time rant.
Most of the US now waits until the first weekend in November to set the clocks back, moving an hour of daylight from the evening to the morning. In Michigan we need that hour now!
Kids are walking to school and waiting for the school bus in the dark so a few people can get in a game of golf after work.
What's more important, the kids' safety or an October golf game?
How can DST be saving energy when every one is getting up in the dark and turning on all the lights?
When I left the house at 8:30, it was shortly after dawn. This picture was taken about a mile from my house. See the deer on the right side of the road?
I stopped the car until I could see how many there were (3) and what they were going to do. Also to take a picture because it was so pretty.
