Tired or Wired in D.C.?

We meet at school at 4:00 a.m. on Saturday night/Sunday morning and fly to Washington D.C. three time zones away. That night we also turn our clocks back to end Daylight Savings Time. (Fortunately, if you forget to fall back you will arrive at school early not late.) *Whew* That's a lot of time changes for one day! How many hours will we gain or lose total? Will we arrive in D.C. tired or wired? We take off from Santa Barbara at 6:20 a.m. just as the sun is rising. As we fly east, will our sunrise be longer or shorter than normal?
