Daylight Saving Time

You have likely noticed the later sunsets and earlier sunrises in recent days.  The Sun now sets near 6PM and rises near 7:30 AM in eastern North Dakota.  Around the Winter Solstice, the sun was setting just after 4:30 PM and not rising until after 8 AM.   The recent changes to when daylight saving time starts will greatly impact the mornings in a few weeks.   By early March our sunrise will be around 7:00 AM, but then on March 11 when daylight saving time starts, the sunrise will go back to 8:00 AM once again, just like it was near the winter solstice. This means the early sunrises will go away and then the whole process for early sun will start once again.
