meh - its a wash, either do it on the front end or the back end. I would rather it stay sunnier later, and would even support a 2 hour jump or so to give evening sunlight....
Agreed, it's really strange to be jogging at 4:30pm and have it be nearly dark outside, every day for five months.
I really hate the whole daylight thing... I don't care of it's dawn when I'm on my way to work because I *just* woke up and will be inside a concrete building for the next 8.5 hours.
But I hate it being dark already by the time I get home. Going outside to do anything seems like a waste. I'm not the biggest fan of driving in the dark because of *certain* joggers that don't know what they're doing (wearing black, jogging on wrong side of road, not paying attention, etc).
I still shake my head at something from like 5 years back, some idiot was in a long black trenchcoat, bending down to tie his shoes, in the middle of a poorly-lit street near a bend in the road. And he was pissed at ME for honking at him. In that position, he might as well be Batman hiding with his cape. So at that time of day, I get joggers AND people walking home at night.
With the sun down by the time I get home, it just feels like the day is done and there's nothing worth doing except getting ready for dinner + bed.
