  • I don't understand how they can justify disrupting the lives of millions of people twice a year- especially in Spring when we lose an hour's sleep. It takes me weeks to re-adjust to DST. We should pick one and stay there. - 11/3/2012 6:12:25 PM
  • I do not like the fall time change as much as I like the spring change, however it is wonderful to be here to see it. - 11/3/2012 1:54:11 PM
  • I used to do a lot of international travel, skipping 4 to 12 time zones in one flight. I found it easier to deal with those time zone changes than with this ONE HOUR adjustment!!!

    We're trying to get a jump on it by starting with the new time today. - 11/3/2012 1:44:02 PM
  • I really hate the time change. I can't seem to adjust my internal clock. I can't sleep because I am not tired and then feel tired all day because I didn't get enough sleep. Takes me at least a week to adjust. I wish they would just do away with the thing. Think of all the money that would be saved by not having to adjust all the manually operated clocks in public buildings and elsewhere! - 11/3/2012 11:22:21 AM
  • verall there are less fatal car accidents?? having nothing to do Im sure with there being no SNOW AND ICE on the roads. - 11/3/2012 10:17:07 AM
  • I dread Daylight Savings changes because the time shifts seem to drive me nuts. Coming or going, I feel really draggy and get sick around that time; it might be a coincidence but it always happens. I spent much of my life in a place without time shifts, so maybe my body rhythm is affected more strongly than most. - 11/3/2012 9:06:49 AM
  • I don't have problem with Daylight Saving Time because we don't have change of hour and everything is the same in summer, autumn, winter or spring. - 9/25/2012 12:28:42 AM
  • I went bed 20 min earlier starting on Thursday and set my bedroom clock accordingly. On Saturday, I set half the clocks in the house and ate meals on the new schedule. I think it really did make today a little easier, especially since I had an early commute to work. - 3/11/2012 9:24:19 PM
  • Sometime back DST was for 6 months, it's now 8 month of the year. they might as well make it permanent.
    I don't like the change. I am a morning person and it throws me off my internal schedule.
    And come Nov. I have to adjust all over again. Although I adjust easier to the fall back.
    In a few months it won't matter. it will be light in the morning and at night.
    Just make it permanent and let the time alone. - 3/11/2012 6:45:15 PM
  • This has always been my least favorite time change of the year. I am much more of a FALL back kinda gal. But why can't we just pick one and stick with it. Now for months my body clock will be all messed up.........................sigh - 3/11/2012 10:29:00 AM

    I never understood why we have to change time twice a year. Do they do this in other countries? - 3/11/2012 9:14:06 AM

  • I used to LOVE DST, but now that I wake up at 4:45 am every morning to work out, I am not looking forward to waking up at ... 3:45 am. Ew.

    (Plus, I involuntarily crash out at 8 pm, preventing me from fully enjoying the evening sunlight)

    I also laughed when I read APONI_KB' s comment about carrying a flashlight. Just this morning (which is a few days before DST), I was soooo overjoyed when I saw how quickly I was bathed in sunlight during my super-early-even-before-the-birds-start-tw
    eeting-morning run. I guess I'll just have to enjoy the rest of this week! What can you do, right? - 3/7/2012 8:55:41 PM
  • My husband and I used to have a rooster that started crowing every day at 4 A.M. as the change over to DST approached. The first morning of DST, it was 4:00 A.M., and no crowing. My husband wondered if something had happened to the rooster until I told him to just wait one more hour, chickens don't know about Daylight Savings Time. Only humans could invent such nonsense. I resent it every year. - 3/7/2012 6:28:20 PM
  • oh goody, JUST when I was finally to the point where I could run in the morning without carrying a light - 3/7/2012 1:42:05 PM
