    Daylight Savings Time ends 10/30(in the US) at 2 am Eastern Time,

    In some states e.g. Arizona and Hawaii, DST does not apply.....

    As of 2007, DST will start the first week of March until the first week of November....

    which begs the question.... why do we have it in the first place?

    All I want to know is if I'm losing an hour of sleep or gaining an hour of sleep. Which one?
