Huh?...Not sure how losing an hour per day would add up to 5 days so quickly. I think you're saying that every day in February should be 25 hours long, which would make February just under 27 days long. By the time February is over, the clocks will have in effect fallen back a day + a few hours, which would REALLY mess everything up.

Back to the drawing board...

    The point is that you'd roll back one hour in the fall. And then 23 hours in Feb.

    1+23 = 24 hours, and you're back to your original time zone

    February 24 and up would be moved to other months.
