At least we will have an extra hour of sunlight in the evening to enjoy! I agree with you that antiquated policies really need to be purged from our system so we can gain some efficiencies.

Bible Debt, good point about the extra hour of evening light. It’ll be nicer when we take Charger for his evening walk.

The time change is quite annoying ~ my kids usually sleep at 8 PM but today they were still jumping around in their room at 9 PM (which is their usual 8 PM)…
