Except for losing an hour of sleep on Sunday morning, the return of daylight savings is a time for celebration!
We finally can get home from work and actually accomplish something in the yard without a flashlight!
There are places like Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands that do not observe daylight savings time (DST).
They might be onto something.
Going to DST was designed to save energy because it would give us an extra hour of daylight for which we would not need to turn on our lights. However, for those of us in the south, it means an extra hour of much needed air conditioning, which costs considerably more than lights, right?
I still like the extra hour, but I wonder…should we look into that again? What do you think?
