A friendly reminder for us in applicable timezones...set the clocks back.

I think it would be great to have an unchanging climate for awhile, but I sure would miss seasons.
Cant imagine life without a crisp frost on the ground in winter, tree's with their red and orange cloaks in autumn/fall, and the joy of cherry blossom, hyacinth and daffodils in spring. I love climbing into my warmed bed in winter and greeting the morning with a frosty breath and frozen laundry on the clothesline!! Bracing stuff!

I do envy you Wasabi for at least the opportunity to organise your wardrobe more easily than I!

I got a kick out of the Arlo and Janis comic yesterday. By the time Arlo reset all his clocks, including finding the instructions for resetting the electronic appliances, he just about broke even on that gained hour.

In the UK there has been discussions (on and off for many years) about not changing the clocks back and forth. BUT, in the north of Scotland, this would mean that wintertime daylight would not happen until about 10.00 am - and children would be going to and returning from school in deep darkness, which might mean an increase in things like traffic accidents etc. So far, the lobbyists for standardising the daylight hours have not won!

I've heard that next fall we are going to change our clocks ahead one hour in November instead of October. No idea why though.
