Default Daylight Savings time this Saturda

Just a reminder, they just mentioned on the news that we move clocks forward an hour this Saturday.

Did not realize it was time for the change but nice to get home with it still light outside

Ugh!!!! Why do we keep doing this. I wish the time would stay the way it is now. It takes me 6 months to adjust to the loss of an hour of sleep.

It does seem to be an expensive thing to do for not much return. How about moving the clocks forward and staying there. Not many people like to see daylight savings end.

Not all states do it, since Arizona and Hawaii don't make any changes throughout the year.

How about a NEW daylight saving plan? It should work like this:

Every day at 3:30pm, every clock in the country would be set ahead to 4:30pm. This would mean that people would get out of work earlier, they would be enthusiastic about shorter days, productivity would go up and America's workers would be happy workers. Also, it would give everyone more daylight after they got off work; this would also make people happy.

Then, every morning at 4:30am, the clocks get set back an hour! This gives everyone an extra hour of sleep and they wake up feeling refreshed; this would also improve productivity in the work place.


(heard it on Car Talk)

Why don't we just stop touching the freaking clock, pick one and stick with it.

x2 -- I vote for permanent daylight savings time, I would rather have the extra daylight in the evening.

Welcome to Arizona! We don't play that silly game here - it's the same time, all the time! Plus, it's not like we need any extra daylight most of the year. We're HAPPY to see that sun go down!

I have a friend who works for a local car insurance company as an underwriter. Car accidents go up 4%-5% the day and week following the forward leap in time. Most of them occur between 6 and 9 am.

Daylight saving normally begins and ends on Sunday (2am).

I know when I lived up north the sun would be at it's lowest point in the sky @11:50 pm and would be back up @ 12:10 am and on the clooudy nights you could read a book for those few moments of darkness 1:00 in the morning would feel like 1:00 in the afternoon
