D S T end is upon us..

Postby Karlsweldt » Fri Oct 31, 2014 5:43 am

Daylight savings time ends for most of us this Saturday. 2 AM Sunday is the official change. For some parts of our world, it has already passed.. and may be many days before happening elsewhere. http://www.worldtimezone.com/daylight.html
It is an ancient practice, dating back more than 100 years. It was intended to extend daylight working hours, so laborers could go home while it was still twilight. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time
Only problem with the change schedule, not everyone has the same change dates! Too bad the idea of using the Spring Equinox and Fall Equinox as change dates was never adopted.

Don't forget to change the battery in your smoke/carbon monoxide detector at this time!
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!

We got this last weekend, always the last weekend of March and October in here.

Changed battery in the smoke detector a few weeks ago, mine starts beeping when it gets low.
We hate rut, but we fear change.
