Surprise Benefit

When Congress passed the measure to extend daylight savings time I thought it was a silly move. I still do. They claimed that it would save some great amount of energy while I argued that the amount of energy saved was insignificant. Honestly it is an issue  that is not worth much of a fight either way. I only bring it up now because I discovered a benefit to the extended daylight savings time – it is not dark by 6:30 on Halloween night which means that walking the neighborhood with young children is much more pleasant than it was before that change.

I forgot to mention that in my Halloween post but that is another reason that I was able to enjoy Halloween more this year. I remembered it today when I realized that I had to adjust my blog for daylight savings – I can’t wait for WordPress to fix that bug.
