I pick DST. I like light in the evenings.

I've found the "loss of daylight" since moving from Cleveland to Richmond distressing. Morning daylight has no cultural significance, it's how long the day lasts in the afternoon. Sunset today in Richmond is 1811 1911. In Cleveland it's 1826 1928. I'm being robbed of 15 17 minutes every day. And it gets worse in the summer.

The key test this week will be the famous "Dachshund Suppertime Factor." They've been insisting on a 1600 supper time. Three of 'em make quite a fuss at that time if not fed promptly. Be interesting if this shifts to 1700 based on their internal clocks. Maybe I can get a government grant to study this.

I like the extra daylight in the evenings, too. My sleep is so erratic it makes no difference whether I lose or gain an hour, the only pain is resetting the time on my non-intelligent clocks.

No no, I want light in the morning. Leave time alone. Leave it as nature gave it. It would still be light till near 8pm in the summer, that's late enough.

I vote for DST year round. I like the extra light at the end of the day. Being retired I don't get up that early and the dark bedroom is nice.

Move to Tallahassee. Very close to the time zone border, it stays light there about as long as anywhere in the Eastern Time Zone in winter.

It does matter a lot where you live in your time zone.
The Upper Peninsula of Michigan has a sunset almost an hour later than Mass does if not more.
of course daylight comes a lot later too.
