I have a problem with Daylight Savings Time and wish the state Legislature would fix it.
It’s wonderful when we switch to DST in the spring and start to have longer, lovelier evenings. With DST, most of us wake up to sunshine (or at least light) and there's plenty of light to work or play outside after work. We also save electricity by not needing electric lights as early. Friends in other places envy our evening daylight hours.
However, when we switch back to Standard Time, the dark months are even gloomier. Many workers go both to and from work in the dark, having no time outside in daylight unless they can get out at lunch.
I suggest that our state legislators consider keeping DST year round. Even better would be having double Daylight Savings Time in winter. With either solution, wouldn’t it be great for most people to still have some daylight after work, even in the shortest days of winter?
