I have no clue why it can't be changed.  So dumb.

Florida voted in 2018 to not change the clocks twice a year, however, it is now awaiting US Congress approval.   

"Over the past years, state legislatures have been active in introducing bills that would place the state on either staying on standard time permanently or making permanent day saving time. Since 2015, more than 200 bills and resolutions have been passed to appeal that every state should either stay on standard time or make DST permanent. However, none of these bills under consideration passed."

So on Sunday, November 7th we once again roll back the clocks.

I saw that on the news this AM.  Very sad event.  I didn't know you only lived 2 miles from where it happened.

Yes,   I literally drove past the place it happened the other weekend,  only because I had to avoid the queues blocking the roads for petrol.

Our biggest hurdle here is Scotland,  the farms and children up north would have more darkness in the mornings for a few extra weeks.

Ugh, is right.  It always amazes me how soon our elected officials forget who they represent and get swayed by the power of lobbyists and other powerful influencers in DC.

Sad part is most of us think it could not happen in my neighborhood.  Reality is bad things can happen anywhere at anytime.

Sadly the police chief now has to figure out how to get them all security.

Yeah, I can see where that would be a problem in Scotland.

It really only makes a difference for a few weeks but there really anti it.  As Scotland wants to be independent I’d be quite happy for us to be in a different time zone to them.

With more security comes the need for more security personnel.  Seems like the old "cause and effect" phrase might fit here.

Indeed,  its coming out in the news that the suspect actually made an appointment to see him.

As well they should treat it as terrorism.  Just a real shame for an event like that to happen.
