    We're in the western fringe of the Eastern time zone, so we get darker earlier than anybody. From Dec. 4 to Dec. 14, sunset is at 5:04 pm.

    Um, a 5:04 sunset is for for pikers. A 4:11 sunset December 4 through December 13 in Boston.

    Ehh, no. As pointed out, sunset is 4:00ish on the eastern edge. So tough shit for me.

    The next 5:04 p.m. sunset in Boston will be in the first week of February. November-January are like science fiction dark.

    I hate BBQing by flashlight. But one must do what one must do.

    Most nights we shut the cats out of the bedroom, but one of those two assholes is usually pawing at the door at about 5:30, singing the songs of his people. .... now it's happening at 4:30. Ugh.

    The alternative is to leave the door open and have that fucker walking across your face.

    Or just leave an outside door open. Problem solved.

    I personally prefer the "just don't have pets" solution, but they pre-date me in the relationship.

    How long do cats live????

    As long as you want them to...

    JK. Yeah, I have a cat right now that I inherited from my ex. This little prick was attacking her other animals, so she said she was either gonna put him down or I could take him. I am a sucker, so I took him. That was five years ago and he's now 11 or 12. My fiance freaking despises the cat. Complains all the time how much my place reeks of cat food or cat litter. That's one of the blessings from having broken my nose four times -- I can't smell shit.

    We're down to 4:50 in my part of Colorado. We'll peak at 4:33. It always stinks especially with the shock of the time change. I think it would be better if it just gradually went there.

    My son's flag football playoffs got postponed for two weeks because of a snow and we needed to practice this week so had a quick half hour with the last bit being fairly dark. Have to do what you have to do.

    I've always sort of leaned on going standard time just because it still gets dark fairly late in the summer (close to 8 on standard time) and while I dislike the early sunsets, I think I would dislike the sun coming up at almost 9 even more. Lived in Arizona for a bit and standard time there, but then the sun came up at 4:30 in the morning in the summer too, so pluses and minuses. But I'd be in favor of just keeping one time regardless.
