OK, so after Daylight Saving Time is over, I have to drive home in the dark. And that's a PITA. But I found one advantage: no sun glare!
Usually at mile 2 of my 50+ mile commute, all forward movement stops. This happens to coincide with the first curve we hit where the setting sun hits dozens of car windshields. Then we sit around waiting for people to adjust to the sun. My commute turns into about a 90-minute adventure from there on out.
I am happy to report that today I had an hour commute, and no slowdown at mile 2. Just smooth sailing, even though it was raining.
