They need to leave DST alone, I like having the sunset at 7PM! The rest of the 49 states need to follow suit, and the government needs to stay out of it. The reasons behind it are not good ones, there is still only 24 hours in a day and I really don't think it was for the farmers.
I HATE daylight saving. I was spoiled after living in AZ for so long that I can't get used to it now. It doesn't help that I have seasonal affective disorder, either.
I am so tempted to move to AZ just to be done with this crazy back and forth clock changing. It's so stupid!!!
No problem in AZ. We just hike in the dark in the summer when the temps are in the high 90's.
I hate changing for DST and think it is ridiculous for the government to mess with our clocks. Indiana didn't used to have to change for DST until the current administration who claimed it would improve our economy. I think we have proven having DST does not improve the economy and wish we could go back to leaving our clocks alone.
The spring forward is the one that messes me up for about a month with trying to adjust and not mess up my workout schedule.
Useful information. Sat. pm is a bit late to send it for full usefulness, however.
I ENJY THE EXTRA DAYLIGHT THIS TIME OF YEAR AS THE WEATHER WARMS AND WE GET OUT AND WALK AFTER DINNER. IN THE FALL WHEN THE TIME CHANGES WHO REALLY CARES IT IS ALREADY DARK SO EARLY ANYWAY.
I hate losing my sleep and am lucky we are on spring break for two weeks right now... I also love the outcome with longer days, so I guess I need to bite the bullet and get over my hour of sleep. The big picture is that this is a strong signal of the end of a very cold and very snowy, long and dreary winter. Hallelujah!! We will be outdoors again, welcome sunshine, Vitamin D and fresh air!!
The government needs to keep their nose out of changing the time. There are other issues that are more important. One's body just gets used to one time and then it's time to change again....
How I love living in Arizona where we don't follow DST! I always hated it when I lived on the east coast. It's so hard on kids!
Thanks so much. Isn't SPRING time wonderful.
Thanks for leaving this posting up, it keeps reminding me that the time has changed. Even though my body just naturally changes with the time (I believe this has something to do with all the travel I have done in my life) but I never remember to change the clocks.
I agree it takes a few days to get use to this change, but oh how I do wish they would leave it this way.
I love having an extra hour at night to go for a nice walk in the summertime or work in the yard. So wonderful and so much good exercise too.
I that we should have one time and alwaays stick to it
