In 2007, we go back to standard time on the first Sunday in November so you'll still be on DST for Haloween.

I think we should drop this out of date idea imo.

Amber, I think they are changing this to November to get even more energy savings.

The quick answer to your question is that On August 8, 2005, President Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. The Act will change the schedule to begin earlier in 2007. DST will begin on the second Sunday in March, which will be March 7th, and end the first Sunday in November, November 4th. The change is supposed to allow us to save energy by using fewer lights, etc. The impact of this change will be reported to Congress by the Secretary of Energy. After reviewing the Secretary of Energy's report, Congress will decide whether or not to leave the longer Daylight Saving Time schedule or go back to the one we're most used to.

I do envy you Wasabi for at least the opportunity to organise your wardrobe more easily than I
This is the extent of my wardrobe 24/7. Warning, I may be larger (much larger) than image (no, that is not me in the pic.). Older too.

I guess this means you've discovered the secret to halt the aging process?

Yes. The humidity here keeps the skin plump and moist. And the time never changes.
