Sunset 7:09 PM. San Francisco, CA
Well, this is the first of many sunsets in what has become the predominant time schedule for the year. Every year brings an outcry to kill off the sudden jolt to DST. However, as we now spend almost 8 months of the year observing Daylight Savings Time, while making only a brief nod to what used to be Standard time during the darkest days of the year, it doesn’t seem very likely we will stop.
I do like the idea of a smooth, continuous cycling through the year- with no abrupt changes. But, which way would we go? Where would we stay? In Standard Time with earlier sunsets in the summer? I really enjoy those late night twilights. Or in Daylight Savings Time, where if we maintained it during the winter, it would still be dark at 8:00 in the morning.

Sunset 5:34PM. Lambertville, NJ
Sitting in same chairs. Watching same TV. Dog still sleeping. What's changed? It's much colder outside. The sunset is 45 minutes later. There are 3 of us (besides the dog) ringing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (instead of Blue Bloods).
