I'm Solar-Powered... Who Knew?

October 12, 2004

I've had to move my alarm back five minutes due to my problems getting going in the morning before sunrise. This time of year I spend an extra few minutes in the shower, sometimes wondering why it's raining inside and why the rain is so warm.

I personally think we go off of daylight-saving time too late; it starts in late April, less than two months before the summer solstice, but runs until late October well after the autumnal equinox. To really balance things, daylight time should end in mid-August. Alternately, if you really want it to run six months, it should be in effect from equinox to equinox.

Anyway, my point is that it's too damn dark in the morning this time of year. And that's really about the extent of it.
