in daylight savings time? An hour is the morning is moved to an hour at night. In reality 12 noon is suppose to be when the sun is at it's peak and this changes everyday of the year so we should be changing our clocks once a day. This whole bit was started by the railroads about 150 years to organize when people would be moved to school, work, etc, then some genius got the idea that the entire population should be doing all things together, ironically the aviation industry ignores all local clocks and used the Zulu standard.
The result of all this is lines and traffic jams, the military was particulary bad on this when an entire base of 80,000 would all eat at once, spend most of the day waiting in line, don't have to mention traffic jams, major cause of CH's and cancer when we can breathe each others car exhaust. The clocks oppose nature, you fish at sunrise, not by some arbitrary number, CH's have no time schedule, here in Central Wisonsin, the times are designed so when you have to be there and are unfortunate to live west of your work/school place, the sun is in your eyes getting there, and back in your eyes getting home, this whole time thing is stupid with severe penalities if your kids are one minute late or you punch in a couple of seconds late and just designed so we get in each others way. Well anyway, don't forget to move all your clocks one hour ahead, and happy daylight savings day to all of you.
