I hate when it gets dark early

Energy Secretary Samuel W. Bodman announced Monday that the country’s seven-month-long effort to conserve sunshine has resulted in the largest national daylight surplus since October 2005.”We have built up over 200 hours of this precious, life-giving resource,” said Bodman, noting that “the sun’s rays are not going to last forever.” “We have decided it would be most prudent not to squander this valuable daylight by distributing it to Americans, instead suggesting that they all just wake up a little earlier.”

Bodman said the surplus will be stored in the Strategic Daylight Reserve—a system of opaque, sealed-off underground tanks located in Arizona—and only tapped in the case of the sun burning out or a particularly rainy afternoon.

It all goes in the Strategic Daylight Reserve. Makes as much sense as Daylight Savings Time.
