In the debate over daylight savings time in the Minnesota Legislature 50 years ago, a rural member of the Minnesota House of Representatives took to the floor and said, “I’m against Daylight Saving Time because the extra hour of sunlight will burn my crops.”
So that’s why I get sunburned every summer!
Worse than the extra sun burning the crops is the extra hour of darkness in the morning. Sure, it helps cut down on the population of kids going to school, but offsetting that is the extra cost of cleaning the vehicles that hit them.
Also, if it is supposed to be the exception from the “standard” time, why does it go on March .. November? That means there are not a lot of months of “standard” time left.
Mostly I prefer to have some light in the morning when I have to get up and head for work. What they call “daylight” time means extra darkness around here.
