Maybe, but I MUCH prefer Daylight Savings Time. I like having a little daylight left at the end of the day to accomplish things. If I had my choice, we'd stay on DST!!!!At least Arizona has it right, they are exempt from DST. If their hot weather is the legitimate reason for it, then I hope TX will jump on board too. FG can tell you it gets mighty hot here too. Maybe not as hot as AZ or consistently, but hot enough.
If I forgot to do it last night can I still do it now?
Gizmo: Yes, this is acceptable, in fact according to mjncad, it is preferable.I wish it was DST year round! I hate winter and having it get dark around 4:30 PM is depressing.
I won't buy a clock unless it sets itself from the NIST atomic clock in the People's Republic of Boulder, Colorado.
OK, here's how I make the transition easier, and if your schedule allows it, give it a try. I set my clocks after I get up instead of before I go to bed. Doing so gives my decrepit body's clock a gentler transition from DST to Standard and back again.
I prefer it too, but I hated for the kids to have to wait for the school bus in the dark.Maybe, butI like having a little daylight left at the end of the day to accomplish things. If I had my choice, we'd stay on DST!!!!I MUCH prefer Daylight Savings Time.
As far as transition....I begin shifting feeding times for critters, etc., about 2 weeks before the clocks change. Allows a smoother transition for them and me!
(I try that going off of DST, but if you are an early riser, it is harder to "sleep in" and make your own body adjust.)
I can read between the lines here Drobinson.....................the wife was still sleeping.:lol:Gizmo: Yes, this is acceptable, in fact according to mjncad, it is preferable.
mjncad: Thanks for this info. Some of "us" in the east are a bit slow picking up on things, unless our wives tell us.
I'm usually up 0330-0400, even on weekends. I still prefer DST. Going to work in the dark doesn't bother me half as much as having it dark when I get home.I'm in bed by 9:30 PM more often than not.:laugh: I gets up 4:15ish AM, at work 5:30 AM. So not a big fan of DST.
