Daylight Savings
« on: March 09, 2017, 07:32:42 am »
Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend.

Apparently, NOAA and the National Weather Service couldn't wait and have already gone to DST. I noticed this morning but it might have happened a few days ago. Wonder if there is a rational explanation ???

Hard to say, SB.

I'll just wait until Saturday night before bed, like most people do!

I called the Weather Service in Grey Maine to ask. They don't know either. It's nationwide !! Have to guess a computer screw up of some sort.

I never changed my clocks last fall so it won't be a problem. The livestock around here don't know anything about daylight savings time so I just never change them to keep them on the same schedule.
My job is to do everything nobody else felt like doing today

Yah, I don't worry much about changing my clocks.

An article in the paper said NH was considering moving to a different time zone because the state immediately south of us was considering it. They argue that almost 100k NH citizens work there and we depend on tourism for an economy now.
I say not enough people working there to matter and changing time zones will make the tourists think they are further from home  :D

I think we should all be on Z time. That way when some one anywhere in the world says an event will happen at 10am you know exactly when that will be.

I think we should split the difference.  Set the time ahead a 1/2 hour now and forget about it  ;) ;D :)

I hate daylight savings. Leave it alone, IMO. I don't know anyone that I've ever spoken too that is in favor of it, it seems to be overwhelmingly unpopular, yet we can't get rid of it ???

I agree with Corley5, move it half-way, then leave it alone!

someone said, It may have been on the FF that only politicians can say that you take something off of one end of the day and add it onto the other and it makes more.

  I'd prefer that we change to Daylight Saving time and then leave it there, I like the extra light on the end of the day.
