I have no idea what you're talking about. I work in a shoe store.
At the mall.
You know, the one up the road a bit. Near Olive Garden.

Oh man,I was thinking how nice it will be to have time to get out & do stuff after work-forgot
about the getting up earlier part!

Did you catch that YM?

DSD said: "I have to work the early morning news on Sunday."...

Another clue to his alter ego!

The only good thing about DST is I get to experience it about 2 weeks later over here. It is my least favorite day of the year and makes no sense whatsoever to me. I think studies have even shown that it does not help conserve energy, which was supposed to be one the the reasons it was implemented.

You are so organized and ready to go.... Can I come live with you?

All joking aside thanks for sharing. I dread DST, but this is some menial task that might make the whole time change insanity useful. I still believe the gov't implemented it to make us age faster due to being tired for months on end trying to get that hour we lost back...

If you are scared or shaking or injured or have your hands full...whistle might come in handy.

I saw one in a commercial disaster prep kit and had never thought about one before for whatever reason. Duh!!

Really cheap on Amazon or any camping supply store.

TIme to do some housekeeping!

Use DST twice a year to test your fire alarms and change batteries if needed.

I also use it to check, rotate out and re-supply disaster supplies, take stock of normal medications and first aid supplies and re-supply if needed etc.

I have very specific locations in the house for flashlights so even in pitch black I could find one in any room. Check those batteries and have one location for spare batteries so you are not digging through drawers. I have a pink box in the laundry room for spare batteries along with a battery tester.

I use LED flashlights that take double AA batteries. I converted from the big flashlights after a power outage. I noticed that all the C and D batteries flew off the shelves but there were still plenty of AA batteries available at the stores.

Also have some of those "hand crank" versions on hand.

This link has helpful lists for in-home and "go bag" supplies.

72hours.org/go_bag.html

I find it funny that they suggest keeping quarters for pay phones. When was the last time YOU saw a pay phone?? Stash of low denomination emergency cash is a good idea. ATMs and credit cards might not work and if power goes.

If you keep guns with loaded magazines in them, empty and rotate the magazines so the springs don't get wonky from no use.

I have just added emergency whistles to the home box and to all our key chains. I had never really thought about this simple thing, but if you need help, it is a good way to signal your location (not in the case of Zombie disaster of course)

Still not sure why rotting tympanic membranes and corneas work darn so well...sigh....
