Saturday, March 10th is the day to move your clocks ahead if you live in a state that still does this.

 

California passed a bill to do away with the time change and keep Daylight Savings Time year round. I need to look into where this is at. I know it needed a 2/3 approval in the state houses and then needs to go to Congress for final approval. 

 

Anyway, enough about that. It’s time to Spring Ahead everybody :D

WA is about to do the same thing. Probably the only bill in the whole d**n legislature this year that I agreed with.

Which states don't use daylight savings time?

th?id=A3e0ffd474faae731ef231a3481a5acbe&

Most areas of the United States observe daylight saving time (DST), the exceptions being Arizona (except for the Navajo, who do observe daylight saving time on tribal lands), Hawaii, and the overseas territories of American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands.

 

Why Arizona doesn't observe daylight-saving time?
But unlike almost everywhere else, Arizona doesn't observe Daylight Saving Time (DST), and hasn't done so for about the last 40 years. It means the state is in the same time zone as Denver from November to March, but then falls behind Denver to Los Angeles time from March to November.
So why does Daylight Saving Time (sometimes mistakenly referred to as Daylight Savings Time) even exist, and why do some states not participate in the biannual ritual? It turns out Daylight Saving Time started out nearly a century ago, way back in March 1918. It was officially pitched as a way to save fuel during World War I. In reality, it was also a means of luring people out into the extended daylight hours to shop, attend sporting events and spend time outdoors, author Michael Downing argues in his book Spring Forward: The Annual Madness of Daylight Saving Time. Today, though, more and more states are arguing that the concept is outdated, and some are even considering dropping it altogether.

wo U.S. states and several territories don’t do Daylight Saving, and a Massachusetts commission is currently campaigning for the Commonwealth, and possibly the rest of New England and New York, to move into the Atlantic time zone, effectively ending Daylight Savings Time there by permanently turning the clocks an hour ahead. Proponents argue that the switch could mediate some of the economic and health consequences that come with decreased daylight — including upticks in traffic accidents, heart attacks, workplace injuries and crime — while improving quality of life during dark fall and winter months. States across the country, from Alaska to Texas to Florida, have floated similar ideas.

Only time will tell if Massachusetts moves forward with the plan, joining these states that do not observe Daylight Savings Time

Time change is a safety and health hazard. Just Google it. There are a plethora of articles about it.

 

Not doubting you, but I kinda think if changing the clock by an hour is enough to give you a heart attack maybe your ticker wasn't too stable to begin with. :unsure:

There is a reason STANDARD TIME  is STANDARD.   Put it there and leave it alone.

I prefer the one we're changing to. But whichever one let's leave it alone.

I like it moved forward. I despise it in the Fall when we turn back an hour. I would not like it much if we went to standard time and left it there. Wintertime sucks with standard time.

Okay so now it will be lighter later in the morning? I always get mixed up with this! I hate it, I wish they would just leave it one way or another I don't even care which one!

I think those that are not fond of time change feel pretty much the same, Rye

The view from my saddle is, "Keep your hands off the clock, and leave the time zones alone. .

Its benefits and detriments will be forever sworn at.

So be it.

Let my voice be this:

My friends, if you do nothing else this time change, switch out the batteries in your smoke detector.

I know what it is to go into what used to be a house, and on overhaul, find the smoke detector hanging open, the battery gone ... and on interrogation, the kids admitted to swiping the battery to run their video game, and didn't put it back, and that night when the fire broke out they lost everything but what they wore to bed.

I never got the changing batteries int he smoke detectors are Time change.

 

My thought has always been that the most likely fire events where 4th of July and Christmas.

So I change batteries on my birthday end of June and the 1st of Dec.

Daylight saving time is like lemmings off a cliff. Dumbassery to the extreme. Socialist wanker wanting control came up with this back in the 1800's. Then adopted here during WW1. Hundred. Years. Ago. 

So outdated.

Being one that gets up at 03:30 everyday and am at work by 6 I like DST. I wish they would set there and leave it alone.

Trust California to push something so stupid.  I guess they can claim they are doing something.  What's next, one time zone for the entire country?  I think China tried that.

Quit gripin'?  Hell, at my age that's the only hobby I have left.  All the rest are beyond either my physical ability or my pocket book.

going to be interesting to see how many make Church this a.m.  

 

We (I) always check the attendance between Traditional Service (8:30) and Compemtporay Service (11:00) each week.

 

Traditional seems, still, to be the larger by 50 or so.

Well, The best part of DST for me is I'll now be waking up at 6:30am instead of 5:30am. Makes me feel more normal getting that extra hour of sleep. I'd be pleased to stay with DST and have the more sunlight in the evenings all year round. Seems silly for a retired person but the same rise-n-shine time for the last 40 years is hard to change. That darn infernal internal clock never takes a vacation.

Actually you lost an hour of sleep last night. At 0200 the clocks jumped ahead to 0300. So if you get up at 0530 Daylight Saving Time (DST) you are getting up at 0430 Standard Time.

Who needs sleep when you have an extra hour of daylight after work to ride motorcycles and shoot guns? :D
