Daylight saving time

I found out today that because of a bill Congress passed in 2005, beginning this year, Daylight Saving time will be extended by about a month. Instead of the first Sunday in April, Daylight Saving time begin on March 11 and ends on November 4.

I wouldn’t have known about this if I hadn’t received email from a software vendor letting me know I needed to patch their software because of changes to Daylight Saving time in the U.S. and Canada.

Getting lighter later just got started sooner and lasts longer.
