Weenie Wednesday: DST Rant

I’m taking a stand. Yes, Daylight Savings Time means more hours of light at the end of the day for those of us who ride after work. But my barn has arena lights.

I don’t like Daylight Savings. Waking up in the dark is hard. I want that extra hour of sleep back, and I want to walk my dog in daylight in the mornings.

weeniebedToo bad I can’t work from home. Or have a more flexible work schedule. Conrad would appreciate that.

darkwalkWalking him in the dark pretty much blows.

cannotseeWaking up before dawn is so uncivilized.

I’m ready to fall back.

  1. I like DST! While waking up in the dark isn’t very fun, I love seeing the sunrise on my way to the barn. And there’s something super cool about sunset occurring at 9 PM. Winter is just terrible all around- it’s still dark in the morning, but now it’s cold, and it gets dark early in the evening, too.

  2. I used to love DST as a trainer because then I could shove a lot more after-school lessons into my schedule. Now… getting up in the dark for work sucks. Even when I leave late, I still watch the sunrise on my commute. I can see the downsides a lot better now!
