I was surprised Sunday when my Palm gave me the message it had changed from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time. I momentarily wondered if we should have set our clocks back, then realized we'd been on time to church so the clocks must have been fine...
Then I remembered that Congress pushed back the end of Daylight Saving Time for another week. These sorts of technological hassles were predicted back in 2005 when Congress passed the legislation. I could have hunted down a "patch" for the Palm to prevent this problem, but it seemed like more hassle than it was worth.
Which is how I feel, in general, about turning the clocks forward and backward twice a year.
One of the things I haven't understood is some articles say that the later time change will make a safer Halloween because children will trick or treat while it's still daylight. I don't know about you, but in our neighborhood the children wait till it's dark to start going door to door. Which simply means a delay in the children going out -- on a school night -- rather than a "safer" Halloween.
As mentioned here before, we'll now be on "Standard" Time just a little over four months -- so how is it that that is "standard"? :)
