    It starts tonight at 2 AM...you "spring ahead" to 3AM.
    Are you ready and do you like it?

    Does it make a difference when you have more evening light and less morning light?

    I hate to have my weekend shortened by an hour, but we do get it back in early November...so I live with it....I like the evening light...lets me get outside and run after work in the daylight...."outside", that's important to me and it gives me more time to do yardwork, when spring really starts to kick in, in a few weeks.....icon_biggrin.gif

    I really tend to like Daylight Savings better than Standard... maybe its because I think of the warmer months with "savings time".

    Love the light later in the evening, but I won't like the dark early mornings for a little while.. .but it will change in a month or 6 weeks.

    Its changing all the clocks (and I have a number of chiming clocks)...

    and then setting the clocks in the car....LOL

    I like it. It allows me to stay out later and I don't have to worry about running in darkness.

    I just don't like the new extended DST. We should revert back to the old schedule. Oh well.

    Most of my clocks are self-setting. The only clocks I have to manually change are my watch, coffee maker, microwave, and car stereo.

    I had no idea. Thanks for the heads up. I'm sure like usual I'll be changing my car clock while I'm driving.

    I wish we didn't have it. So what if midnight was in the middle of the day. It's not like we are actually saving it.

    Be careful though. Auto accidents increase until people get used to the inconvenience.
