Why bother? We just have to readjust our lives twice a year.

My cats will be so happy. I feed them when I get up in the morning and they don't like or understand when one day in fall I start feeding them an hour later than I did all summer. They spend all winter trying to get me to switch back...
I truly wish they would stop messing with the time. Thanks for the reminder that it is tonight.

I LOVE this time change!! I'm up, but not outside in the early morning, so darker mornings don't bother me, and I love, love, love more daylight at the end of the day!! Helps my spirits immensely!! Easier for me to stay active, which makes me sleep better, which makes me more energetic, a nice snowball effect!! Plus temperatures will soon be turner warmer!!!

it always upsets my body rhythms - both forward and backward time-setting exercises. I almost wish I lived somewhere that didn't do it.
Not only that, my dog walking will be in the dark again for a while, until the sunrise catches up with the change

I wish it would stay the same.

I am excited! I can't wait for it to stay light out longer.

I would really prefer to stay on the same time all year. That makes a lot more sense to me, as it seems more economical. What about people who have medical conditions that require them to follow a schedule? This 2/3 split seems impractical. 12 months of continuity I say.

I look at the bright side...getting closer to warm weather and more hours of sunshine.
Like Firecom I live in Arizona where we don't do daylight savings... my selfish response is that I frequently forget the time difference between us and the coasts....

I'm with Norwoodgirl. It screws-up my psychological bedtime. I think it's late and it's early. Takes a while for my body to adjust. Just leave it alone. I want to sleep when it's dark and be awake when it light!

I don't care whether we stay on DST or not - but quit changing the times twice a year. Studies have already proven it does not save on electricity or any other reason for making the change.
3/6/13 4:14 P
WHY do we ever change the clocks. Pick a time, stick with it. We have electricity now, we don't need to change the clocks. We will turn on a light and keep working. NO MORE CLOCK CHANGES. It is SO silly.

I love the longer days....I wish it stayed that way year 'round.

Absolutely cannot wait! I have much more energy in the evening when it is light out and am looking forward to evening walks! Plus I don't like driving anywhere in the dark so I always put off evening errands until the last minute - will be much easier with the sun staying up later!

Losing the hour of sleep is a beating but I am absolutely ready for Spring!

Not observed here in AZ. I do think the idea is OK so I wonder why it is not observed year around.
I love it as my husband will go to 4 ten hour days verses 5 eight hour days, but it will take me time to adjust so I will be drowsy in the mornings and tired by the afternoon for a while. Three day weekends start in April and last for 6 mos. :)

I am looking forward to the time change. It helps to make the day longer. We need the added sunshine on the sunny days. I feel like Spring and Summer is just around the corner, soon after the time change. Paint me sunny and happy!!!

Can hardly wait for it, finally more outside time with the kids (wintertime = dark after nap time *lol*), more daylight at evening ... why do we have to have those non-saving time anyway??? ;o) Wish we could have it trough the whole year ^^

This weekend I can hardly wait.Bring on the sunshine.
It will make a huge difference in this part of the world. At the moment when I wake up at 6am its dark, it gets dark by 6pm. It makes it hard to be motivated to go outside so having longer days will make a huge difference to me.

Day Light Saving Time is Sunday March 10. Setting the clock ahead will not make much of a difference to me
