I really don’t understand what Congress is trying to accomplish here. There is a really perverted logic involved with how shifting the clock can save energy. This seems like doing something to make it look like you are accomplishing things.
From a technology standpoint, this is really painful. It is really nice when everything changes the time for you. I think the only things in our house that don’t automatically change time are our actual timepieces and alarm clocks.
I think the funniest part about this whole thing is the fire departments are pissed. They had a really good way of telling people when to change the batteries in their smoke detectors. Now that doesn’t work because the summer hours are too long.
