If you want to know why you are stuck in the annual end-of-Daylight-Savings-Time traffic jam tomorrow evening, here is my best effort to come up with an explanation (search for “traffic”). It’s all about “natural time” vs. “artificial time. ”

[T]he end of Daylight Savings time makes the people who go by human clocks head home just as the sun is setting, which is when the “nature’s clock” people also naturally tend to head home.
