Default Re: I have a Garage!!! :)

I've got a garage and I couldn't be more thankful. Just wish it had a proper power supply, lights...etc. Great in the summer with the long days, but doing work on the weekends in the winter is a proper bum rush effort to try and beat sunset. F***ing daylight saving is such a useless, pointless thing.

Daylight saving is to ensure the workers can still get up in a morning to get to work, but daylight in the afternoon / evening is so much more usable for most people. There is a school of thought that says daylight saving actually uses more power as the lights and heating go on an hour earlier in homes.

Yeah, we're not in the 1930's anymore. It's useless and most people use blackout curtains anyway, so the argument for sunrise is pointless.

I'd happily see it gone, I'm pretty sure most would be much more happy with more light into the evening than in the morning. Getting up in the dark and leaving work in the dark is just super bloody depressing.

This would happen even if you didn't change the clocks. Therefore no point changing them imho.

Might not be the same for everywhere that uses Daylight Saving times though - and most of Europe is in sync with it, so probably best not to rock the boat.

If anything, push it another hour forward so we're darker in the mornings but lighter in the evenings!
