Sunday morning at 2:00am it's time to set your clocks ahead an hour.
I HATE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME. There, I said it. I don't hate DST per say, just that they've moved it up two weeks early and two weeks late in the fall. I'm up by 5:30a.m. or so and it's just now getting light out by 6. Turn the clocks forward and it's darkness for another few weeks. I'd be ok if they just let mother nature be and not mess with the clocks at all.
i hate the freaking spring forward.
The fall backs fine.
That's this weekend!
Sunlight until 10 pm !
you do realize, you get that sun on the other end of the day, right?
Thank you for the reminder!
Yeah, but I hate to travel that far for it.
I want it on this side of the day, damn it!
Call me odd but I prefer the sun during the day, not at 8pm.
Sun setting at 5pm is too early, 9pm too late. I wish it would set at 7pm all year long and rise at 7am all year long. Not ever gonna happen though!
How long is daylight savings time in effect now?
On Sunday, March 7, at 2 a.m. daylight saving time goes into effect.
Daylight saving time continues until 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 1.
That's nearly 8 months of the year.
Given that, shouldn't we stop calling it daylight savings time, and just call it the time?
Therefore, I propose that we call that period of about 4 months in the winter
Nightdark wasting time, instead.
Those four months ought to be thought of as the fake time, instead of like we're psychologically doing now when we call this 8 months daylight savings time.
Now, we're on REAL TIME.
Yesterday we were on that fake time.
