Out of the Blue

The wee hours of tonight/tomorrow will mark the end of Daylight Saving Time in these parts, so tomorrow will be a 25 hour day. It getting dark an hour earlier may not be well timed for those in this area still without power, but on the bright side (so to speak) it seems power is being restored in more places all the time, though this is going to be small comfort to those still in the dark.

Hourly Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Iron Ladies.

Yeah, it would be confusing at first. But just think, you could be talking to anyone in the world and set a time for your next call/meeting/whatever and it would be so simple. None of that I'm in this time zone, you are in that time zone, but I'm doing DST, blah, blah. The gains will be well worth the initial weirdness. After a few years you'd wonder why anyone ever did it any other way.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
