Daylight Savings Being Extended!
This is cool! We will now have two more months of extra daylight in spring and fall! I think it´s an awesome idea.

ongress to add 2 months to Daylight Savings Time

It looks like Daylight Saving Time is about to be extended, and that has child safety and fire prevention advocates riled.

Congressional leaders of both parties have signed off on a proposal, being considered in Washington this week, to start Daylight Saving Time on the first Sunday in March and end on the last Sunday of November. They say it would save energy.

If the president signs the bill, the new law would take effect immediately, extending Daylight Saving Time by one month this fall. Currently, Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of April and ends at 2 a.m. on the last Sunday of October.

"The more daylight we have, the less electricity we use,´´ said U.S. Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), who co-sponsored the measure with U.S. Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.).

DAYLIGHT DIARY

# The theory of "daylight saving" dates to Benjamin Franklin. It was first used by Germany and Austria in April 1916 to conserve energy during World War I.

# The United States adopted it in March 1918 but repealed it a year later because the measure wasn´t popular with rural America.

# Daylight Saving Time was readopted in the United States from 1942 to 1945. It was called ´´War Time.´´ From then until 1966, when Congress attempted to standardize its use, some states used it and others didn´t.

Re: Daylight Savings Being Extended!
Even though this article tends to be negative, I happen to like the idea of being able to have extra time to cut my grass in the fall and to do other work around the house. I can´t stand when the clocks are turned back and there´s only two hours left to get work done after work.

Do not forget that they are trying to make interest off of that savings too.

I´m with you on that. I hate when it gets dark at five o clock when you are leaving work. The lack of daylight in the winter bothers me. To some people, it really affects them worse.
