    I have to say I like daylight savings time.... the long evenings, the day seems more productive on savings time.... and it means the winter is over. I do think the transition is a pain in the butt since they moved it up to March instead of April like it used to be. I'm going to need my alarm clock next week to make sure I'm up at
    6:20 a.m.....

    Hows about you?

    I'm also looking forward to the long(er) daylight evenings.

    Working day shift all the time now had made the afternoon/evenings of the last few months....useless... for anything outdoors.

    This DST thing really doesn't bother me.

    I adhere to polyphasic sleep schedule where I take a 1 hour nap every 4 hours.

    I'm more productive, feel better and have more time to do with what I want.

    I don't have to get up early for any specific reason, so no sleep loss for me!

    Most of your work takes place after the darkness has shown it's murky face, no?

    Not happy. I prefer shorter days and longer nights but I'll roll with it.

    We are starting daylight savings time too damned early. It should have remained in the first weekend of April. You are not saving any energy because when you get up early you still have to turn lights on because it is dark. You probably end up leaving a couple of those lights on when you leave because it will still be dark outside. The whole idea of moving daylight savings time into March was a stupid and irresponsible idea. But then our fearless political leaders never really knew how to think clearly. Go figure.

    Do not look at it as losing sleep but rather than be able to run later at night after work and not be dark out. Have a good one guys..

    I agree. Now I'm back to commuting to work in the dark again for another 3-4 weeks. Why not just move the clocks forward 1/2 hour and leave them there! The cows and farmers really don't care...

    Here in Indiana we have this long acrimonious relationship with time, time zones and DST. Many years ago the whole state was in the CTZ, then more and more of the state got moved to the ETZ. In 1969 the whole state observed DST. Then in 1972 DST got repealed in the ETZ portion of the state, for many years until 2006 the ETZ portion of IN remained on EST year-round. Since 2006 the whole state has observed the time switch bi-annually. Now there's a push to petition the USDOT to bring all of IN back to the CTZ because we now have only 120 days/year where the sun comes up before 7am in the ETZ.......icon_rolleyes.gif pretty fucked up, isn't it? gee whiz....make up our mindicon_exclaim.gif

    As much as I like DST, I also preferred it back when it started in April.

    Honolulu is the best for all this Daylight Savings Time nonsense. Hawai'i simply does not recognize it. The people in Hawai'i are like, "Meh! Why bother changing the clock when it will change back if we wait long enough."

    I don't work, so the time change doesn't matter to me.
    I just hate having to change all of my clocks and watches.

    Fall down."

    Barring the stove clock I don't think I own anything that requires manual changing anymore...

    I have to work overnight tonight during the DST transition. That means one less hour I have to work during my shift. AND I still get paid my full 8 hours for only working 7! icon_biggrin.gif

    No I'm not ready to lose sleep, but it is nice after a week has passed and everyone's used to the change. Love the longer days.

    ...sadly all I have to remark is that the watercolor in the back has such an almost C├ęzanne Large Bathers quality that I'm sad I cannot see the other piece cut off to the right...

    I absolutely cannot wait for this to happen! I hate how it gets dark too early. When the night comes i just cant do any work at all.
