Don't forget to set your clocks ahead. I am one who thinks this silly practice needs to end...
I hate it too. Why not do it in the middle of the week during a normal work day? Why does it have to screw my weekend? Set it at one time (either daylight saving time, or standard) and be done with it.
The reasons for doing it have long passed and the latest research shows it is actually detrimental and adds to the holiday depression of many people.
Arizona doesn't even follow it. I think they're the only state that doesn't practice it.
Either way, I'm excited for some "longer days".
I have read the same.
absolutly silly. first, how in the world does this actually save time? bloody nuisance if you ask me.
Saskatchewan in Canada does not practice it, Alberta has talked of moving away from it as well.
I think IND ignores it as well.
I'm fine with ending the practice as long as it stays with daylight favoring the evenings. Dark at 4:30/5:00 o'clock in the winter flat out sucks. This Sunday is the best day of the year in my book.
Best day of the year for me is the day almost all the leaves are out on the trees. You know Winter is definitely behind you, and a long way ahead of you. Next favorite is Summer Solstice.
Not true. It’s actually good for you both mentally and physically as without it, we would be getting off work when it’s dark. That’s not good for you.
In the Winter, it's usually dark on my way to work and home from work..........Now what?
If you mean Indiana then no, we don't anymore. Changed 10 or 12 years ago. Dumb as heck. The originally let the counties decide if they wanted to be eastern or central. That went well. had to open it back up so that the counties could change their original choice after about a year.
It was great not observing it when I was young back in the 80's. Half the year when we lined up with central you could turn your antenna towards Louisville and watch a show. Then if you liked it you could turn the antenna towards Indy and watch it again that same night.
I'm not for or against DST. Though honestly, I'm usually in bed before it get dark in the Summer, so I don't really get much benefit from it.
DST is a mixed bag
It is nice having the extra hour of daylight after work for 8 months
I'd also be fine if they ditched it though.
I think it's more valuable to the norther states...fwiw
Personally I wouldn't mind it here in Indiana if we were in central but no, we are eastern and it sucks.
That's tough being right on the edge. Is Illinois in CST?
I like it when you get like that!
