Daylight Savings Time

Why are we on daylight savings time? I think the concept of daylight savings time is a big sham dreamed up by a team of consultants who were hired by the government to "think outside the box" to come up with ideas to save energy.
I think it started when Nixon was in the White House. They probably contemplated the problem for months, milked as much moolah out of the gov as possible and on a dare, they came up with daylight saving time. "Bare with me Dick, because it gets complicated," they managed to say without spewing coffee on the Prez. "Every year during the spring, we move the clock forward one hour, and each fall we move it back an hour. That way, the public stays disoriented enough that they will sleep longer to try and adjust to the time change and therefore save money on heating and cooling. When they become accustomed to the time, it changes again."
I bet that whole management team laugh hysterically when the check from Uncle Sam cleared.
Anyhow, I didn't mean to get on a rant, but it has been my intention to shoot some photos of the foliage on the way home from work, but thanks to those weasel consultants, it is now too dark when I leave work.
Late last week, I left a little early and capture this shot in the parking lot of the building where I work.
Hopefully I can shoot a few this weekend before the rain beats the leaves off the trees.

  1. I'll anxiously await the new photos. Maybe there'll be some inspiration for a new watercolor.
