Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 1, 2015.
Daylight Saving Time is only a good idea until it ends. Then it seems stupid to change all our clocks AGAIN for no apparent reason except to make children wait in the dark at bus stops and make us all grumpy, fussy and tired.
At least when we FALL BACK and turn our clocks back we get an extra hour of sleep.
At 2 AM, Sunday, November 1, 2015, we revert to Standard Time, and begin wondering if changing our clocks is worth all the bother.
Only a genius, geeks who actually read manuals or the average 11-year-old can reset clocks on car dashboards, stoves, coffee makers, motorcycles, computers, TV sets and a bazillion other gizmos before we "spring ahead" and do it all again.
The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) urges consumers to change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when adjusting the clocks. The CPSC also recommends replacing carbon monoxide detectors every five years and smoke alarms every 10 years.
Not that this matters at all to SoBos still on the Trail headed for Springer Mountain.
That's the best way to save daylight.
