Down under we have just lost our extra hour of daylight in the evenings and I miss it, I am a DST fan. We must follow the equinox more closely, we changed over on March 19. Or maybe it was just pure luck that the govenrment chose that date.
During DST it can be light until 9:30pm where I live, which is great for doing things after work wether it is gardening, going for a run or a bike ride etc. But on the bright side I guess it does mean that winter is getting closer, we have been getting falls of snow on the hills, won't be enough to ski on until late June.
