Not as sad as most years. Horse Nation: The Idea of Order: Hello Darkness, my Old ‘Friend’…
1) Working horses in the am. Will benefit from morning light.
2) The last time?!

Didn’t pass the House. How could anyone be against this?!!
DSL was heavily lobbied by the candy and golf course industries which the Senate was too preoccupied to resist. Scientists finally got a word in edgewise and explained why DST is unhealthy, and would also move winter’s dawn as late as 10am for millions of people. The Washington Post has a very entertaining overview, “Why Daylight Saving Time Is Worse for Your Body than Standard Time: An animated story of what science says about changing our clocks in the fall and spring”: https://www.washingtonpost.com/wellness/interactive/2022/permanent-standard-time-body-health-benefits/?itid=hp-top-table-main_p001_f007
Obviously, I am not on team DST! Let’s go back to, you know, Time. Let noon be at noon, or closer to it, year around.
Before I worked in the office, I actually looked forward to the shorter days. It meant a curfew of sorts for horse training and was the time of year when I got to go home, sit down, and relax/catch up a bit. I feel differently this year when the trails are only open 10-2 and it gets dark before I get off of work and to the barn. I look forward to staying in DSL next year.
I think there are two issues here.
1) DST vs Standard Time
2) Changing from on to the other twice a year.
We may differ on #1 – team afternoon light over here. I think we can agree that #2 needs to go.
