Imagine this.

There are three curtains on stage and you get to pick only one in order to receive the merchandise behind it.

You have the advantage of knowing today what’s behind two of the curtains. Behind the first curtain is a state-of-the-arc vacuum cleaner and behind the second is a top-of-the-line dishwasher.

However, you don’t know today what’s behind the third curtain but you do know that it has the possibility of being worth millions of dollars.

On the positive side, the change means it will stay daylight longer so you’ll have time to do things perhaps around your house when you get home from work. On the negative side, the change means we all lose an hour of sleep.
