Timezone diminishment

There is often a one-week gap in the spring between when Europe and when the U.S. and Canada deal with daylight savings. This year, there is a two week gap. I find it disorienting that the east coast is only four hours of timezones away from me for this fortnight. It's as if the whole American continent got up and shuffled a little closer to me.

Believe me, that's how it feels over here...the only good thing is getting to sleep in until 4, as my guy is at work at 8...

About 20 years ago Newfoundland moved forward two hours instead of one in an ill-advised experiment that knocked us out of sync with the rest of the country even more than usual. During the summer it was great "Hmmm... it's getting dark. Must be about midnight". But in the fall it was pitch black for half the morning.
