    WHOOT!!!!!!!
    Thanks to a new law, daylight savings time will start three weeks earlier and end one week later this year. It will begin at 2am on the Second Sunday in March and last until the first Sunday of November.

    MORE RC RUNTIME!!!!

    I'm experiencing deja vu with this thread.

    Long overdue on changing the times. I wish they would switch to DLST and leave it that way.

    The problem is, they'd do it the wrong way!!! They'd give us darkness sooner cause, well it's our government!!
