Posted on 03/13/2010 7:59:04 AM PST by JoeProBono
Most Americans trade an hour's sleep this weekend for more evening sunshine to enjoy after work.
Officially the change to daylight saving time occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, local time, though most folks set their clocks and watches ahead an hour before going to bed on Saturday

Looking forward to it!
Why don’t we just stop this stuff....period. This is government...
Daylight savings was always a dumb idea, as well as a misnomer.
I have to get up at 3:45 AM to grab a plane (I do so every Sunday). That means tomorrow I have to get up at 2:45 AM!!!
Phooey on DST!
I have but one thing to say about Daylight Savings Time....
I’ll set my clocks forward around 7 pm tonight. Then, when somebody calls, I can say “What are you calling so late for?”
Go to bed an hour earlier, and all should be well. Only the first day is a real transition.
I wish they would put it on DST once and for all and just leave it there.
About ten years ago my wife gave me for Christmas a neat Timex clock radio for my nightstand that would retain the time memory and automatically turn forward or back for DST.
They go and change DST so now I have to change it manually four times a year. Twice as much work.
How much longer do you have to do that? I did that routine for a short while. If it was for the long-term, I was ready to move.
Yup, DH has to get up at 3 am to get to work on time.
Why is DST getting earlier every year?
10 year, 15 years, who know?
Been doing it for 10 years (off an on), I am guaranteed at least another year on the current project.
Planning on moving to Texas to cut my commute down.
Has anybody ever considered the effect on global warming adding this extra hour of dailight all these years?
I detest DST.
