please dont make me fall back again this year


i am now the garden manager at our community garden
i do it as a volunteer
i was recently contacted by a girl scout troop that wanted to tour our garden and then learn about harvesting vegetables
so i said sure do afternoon or weekends whichever works best for them

i do an hour tour of the garden then let them do some harvesting of the food we donate
they will harvest it weigh it and bag it up for the donations the next day

sure i said just pick the date and time
they chose
monday november 5th from 4-6pm
perfect i thought
i remembered
isnt that daylight not savings time the weekend before
there it was
daylight not savings time at 200am on sunday november 5th
now do we fall forward or fall backward
i always feel like i fall forward on my face for a few days
this is called standard time
dont think thats what i would call it

i looked at the sunset and dusk times for that monday november 6th
it showed
502pm sunset
530ish for dusk
that means at the end the kiddos would be harvesting in the dark
the chickens wont want to go to bed at sunset with all those kids around
they may not lay eggs the next day
see the economic impact daylight not savings time has

congress will get off their behinds and change it before that time
knowing how congress works 
that aint happening

daylight not savings time was basically instituted to save energy
how about the loss of energy we all get when this daylight not savings time hits us every year
doesnt that count for something

why havent they fixed this
