Daylight "Saving" Time

I must be missing something. Does it take less energy to light up a dark morning than it does to light up a dark evening? My neighbor goes to work at 7a.m. She used to come out of the house, hop into her car, and take off. But now that Daylight Saving Time has kicked in, she can't find her way to her car in the dark. So, now she turns on her porch light before she comes out of the house, hops into her car, and takes off. Leaving her porch light to burn all day long. Isn't it wonderful, the energy savings one can realize this time of year...

That's funny! I've always thought the Daylight Saving Time was for the boozers who will start bar-hopping an hour earlier. But maybe the power company really wants people to pad their bills. Just like in Georgia, the drought caused severe water usage restriction. So then the water companies started charging more. Because people were not using enough water and their bills went down. So the water company lost money! Cain't burn whale oil, cain't drown mahself!
