Fall Back to Standard Time this Weekend

It's nearly time to "fall back" to Standard Time. Daylight Saving Time comes to an end this Sunday at 2am. Don't forget to set your clocks BACK one hour Saturday night before you go to bed. The good news is that you will get an extra hour of sleep, and it will be brighter earlier in the morning. The bad news is that is will get dark an hour earlier. We'll stay on Standard Time until the second Sunday of March, when Daylight Saving Time goes back into effect.

    I think this is the dumbest law that was ever passed. Try making your blanket shorter by cutting 1 foot length from the top and then sewing it back on the bottom. What has been gained ? It is the same length.

    I think the time should be left alone! It is horrible getting home from work and not being able to enjoy the good old outdoors for no more than an hour each day. There is no benefit to changing the time back and forth.

    My proposal has been to consolidate the USA into only two time zones. Combine Eastern and Central into Eastern (UTC-5), combine Mountain and Pacific into Western (UTC-7), and eliminate daylight savings time. If you want an "extra hour" of daylight, just wake up an hour earlier.

    Thank God. Every October is the pits having to get up and go to work in the dark. The time should fall back at the end of September more in accordance with the phases of the Sun. There is no free lunch. Right now I burn electricity in the morning with lights, when we fall back I will burn electricity at night. In our 24/7 economy I don't think daylight savings time really saves all that much. I do like having it in the spring and summer but in the fall it is the worst. When we had it year round in the early 1970's it was the torture. I think we should be more in tune with the sun, maybe work longer days in the summer and shorter days in the winter.

    Did a stint in Arizona they did not do the Daylight savings ... why can't we just leave it alone. I know this was instituted decades ago thinking it would be beneficial to less electric use, fuel use, but the truth of the matter the point has never been proven. Just leave us Standard time like most of the rest of the country. When we are DST and the rest of the country is not it really messes with your biological clock. In going from some places to others you can lose up to three hours ..... Leave it alone...seriously....

    why can't we just stay on the same time all year long. many states don't change back and forth and florida needs to do the same.
