The worst. Abolish it now.

Totally. We do ours a week or two earlier than in the US and every year it's the worst!

The EU has decided in principle to abolish DST potentially as soon as next year.

The only problem is, they can’t decide whether to permanently settle on winter time or summer time!

Ours is still waking up in summer time but going to bed late for winter time.

Samantha is still on DST time. She's been getting up at 6 all week and falling asleep during bedtime reading ...

On my way to SW OH for Nationals, I drove around Columbus a bit after 7am -- the start of morning rush -- and it was still quite dark out. When DST ends, a common complaint around here (N NJ) is that the evening commute is in the dark.

So, I'm thinking that the real cause of dark commutes is reduced daylight at this time of year -- and neither year-round DST, nor its elimination, would satisfy most people. Of course, the Eastern Time Zone extends from east of Chicago, to the easternmost point in the continental US (Eastport / Lubec, ME) -- a L O N G ways.

The argument could be made that the real cause of dark commutes (at least in moderately well-lit USA) is that people work too many hours in a day.
