Time to ‘fall back’: Turn the clock back one hour Sunday

Just in case you haven’t been over-reminded yet: Daylight Saving Time is in its waning hours for this year; early Sunday – aka Saturday night – we’ll turn the clock back an hour (2 am Sunday becomes 1 am). Lost track of time? Find the official U.S. clock here.

    So stupid. End this dumb thing already.

    I wonder if it would actually be possible, to end this practice? It’s a wasteful use of energy and resources. For people, it seems to cause frustration and mix-ups

    We purchased a self-setting clock right before the Bush administration changed the day everyone is supposed to change their clocks. Apparently the day is hard-coded into the clock (duh, this’ll never change says the programmer) so it decided to change -last- weekend. Talk about frustration and mix-ups!!!
    Europe is on a different schedule which also makes scheduling remote meetings a trial.

    just heard some interesting trivia on ch4 weather news; tomorrow/Sat is latest sunrise, 8ish am, since 1973, due to very late time change

    I say move the U.S. back 30 minutes, and call the whole thing off. I’d miss sunsets at 9:10 or so in the summer, but would rather not spend 2+ days feeling/realizing that I am late.

    This time every year I look at it this way…it’s like over paying your taxes and the reward at the end of the year is a refund. In this case it’s an hour extra of sleep. I’ll take it!

    Maybe with the extra hour you could find something else to complain about besides Day Light Savings.

Sorry, comment time is over.
