    We don't do that till Nov 3rd...well except in Saskachewan where they don't "do" DST but then they're weird eh? I have a friend who lives in Regina. His wife left him and he watched her go for 5 days.

    Bah. Maybe somewhere winter arrives...

    It's supposed to hover around 90 for the high here for the next week.

    BTW, we don't do that lame DST thing here either. The last thing we need is more sun.

    Clocks went forward a few weeks ago.

    Don't be so northern-hemisphere-centric!! 😛

    Why do they keep going back 1 hour, then forward 1 hour, etc.
    That seems a little insane to me.

    Just go back half an hour this time, and then leave it alone after that!

    Australia has a sensible 6-months-on, 6-months off, policy, except for the cowboys (in the really hot places) who don't bother with it at all. And we're always rubbishing Queenslanders who think if they have daylight saving their curtains will fade more ...

    It all depends where you live. In the UK it starts getting dark when people are making their way to work and school, so the clocks are put back to buy some extra light during the darker months. In the summer months it helps people who work late, maybe farmers and such as it contrives a later sunset.
    You could disregard the whole concept of putting clocks forwards and backwards and ask people to do everything one our earlier as of such a date, but people being people, I doubt they would comply. You have to tell them that 'THE TIME HAS CHANGED' and they follow like lemmings.
    Bizarre really.

    It's an interesting punctuation to the year. It breaks up the boring bit between the end of summer and Christmas.

    A rabbit called Rocky, one would assume.
