^^^And for us, it used to not be so much of a problem back when we fell back in mid-October. But for the last week, I've been waking up the kids while the streetlights outside are still turned on.
Between that, 80º weather and World Series that don't finish until November, I've been feeling pretty discombobulated already. Lord knows how I'll feel tomorrow.

But also keep in mind that tonight will be magical for one reason.
The Central Time Zone will fall back at 2 a.m. In other words, the clock will go from 0159 to 0100.
Since the Mountain Time Zone won't fall back until 2 a.m., it will also be 0100 in those areas. So the contiguous states will really only have three time zones for 59 minutes.
Which also means that the time in portions of Oregon (a state on the West Coast) and portions of Florida (a state on the East Coast) will be the same.

Seeing how DST is now seven months of the year, I think it should be called Standard Time. We could rename current Standard Time to something like Darkness Redistribution Time.

Totally selfish, I know, but I don't care what time the sun comes up because I work from home, but I hate it getting pitch black outside at 5pm because that only leaves the weekend for me to do shit in my yard. Fuck s standard time.

I appreciate more light in the morning, being an early riser, but then it goes away quickly anyway. Annoying.
