Several years ago, the owner of a sandwich shop on the main drag in Damariscotta, Maine, grew so tired of turning the clocks back in the fall — and witnessing the early sunsets that followed — that he simply decided not to. That year, he kept his shop on daylight saving time all winter.
"As Daylight Saving Starts, Some Ask: Why Fall Back at All?" is from the March 12, 2017 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Jess Bidgood and narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel.
