Probably around the beginning of April.
I, as moderator, am not too concerned about it.

I, as a member, was just taking notice.

Course the fun part is that it's 7 PM, the sun is out, and the snow is glistening on the ground! How natural and lovely.

Gordon,
I dissagree, it was just starting to be light when I head into work in the morning.  Now it is pitch dark......  and soon it will be light out when I want to be sleeping....

The time changes suck. I think that the times should be kept the same all year around. I don't mean that there shouldn't be any mountain time, eastern time, so on and so forth, because that is obviously needed due to the earth being round. When it comes time to set the clocks back an hour, I usually leave all of my digital clocks set at the same time all year, and just remember that they are an hour ahead. How lazy is that?

Dwight, no wrist watch for Joe. He uses a pocket watch in good old railroad fashion

Ok. Usually my pocket watches are the only things that I set to time. I set those, and my battery operated clocks, and that is it. Talk to you guys later.

I don't mind the extra daylight in the pm as our outside work is usually dictated by daylight.  Down here we seem to get more work done as we work later (especially track work), then when it's time for supper the usual restaurant we go to is far less crowded.
