Don't Forget!

Daylight Savings Time starts tomorrow night. At 2 A.M. to be precise. Make sure to set your clocks forward an hour- "spring forward, fall back." Of course if you are in Indiana, Arizona, or in certain other parts of the world, this doesn't apply.

Daylight Savings Time is another thing I've spent way too much time researching on the Internet. It was started to give farmers more daylight, but now it's just nice for those of us who have to work late. Most stuff like your computers, cell phones, maybe your TV if you have a smart one will reset automatically. But the rest of the stuff you have to remember. I never do. They pushed back our work meeting an hour to accommodate this, but I'll still get it screwed up. And I can never remember how to reset Harvey's clock. But after a week of going around wondering what time it is I'm sure I will adjust...

We don't have it (DST) here in Arizona (well most of it) and I always get confused as to what time it is everywhere else. Though thankfuully I don't have to worry about changing my clocks, watches, cell phones or such!

Daylight savings time is great, when you are working the spring ahead night shift. When one works 12 hours it is nice to go home an hour early. But in fall, if you work the night shift on the fall back daylight savings day it almost kills you to work the 13 hours. It also screws up the times to give meds. Presently my kids are getting up way too early for myliking, I think its because of the bright sunlight so early. I`m hoping the time change will change their biological clocks.

Don't you mean, it starts very early Sunday morning? If you set your clock ahead tonight (Friday), you'll be running needlessly early all day Saturday.

I remember years ago, at my home church, a guy got mixed up and set his clock ahead in the fall. He arrived at church 2 hours early that Sunday.

We put our clocks forward last Saturday night/Sunday morning.

We are now on British Summer Time (BST) rather than Greenwich Mean Time GMT) - SUMMER IS COMING - YAY

It is always the later change back that gets me - dark mornings - yuck

I wish the daylight savings time would stay all year (like back in the 70's). I like having more light towards the end of the day

And if any of you besides Jeff noticed, yesterday was my feeble attempt at an April Fools' joke by making DST one day early. It reads correctly now. But hey, it worked on Jeff :D
