Don't forget to set your clocks an hour ahead tonight.
:rolleyes: Since you brought it up is it just me or does anyone else think that this practice is really outdated and at this point in time idiotic? I mean really whatever the reason was..energy savings etc We live in a 24/7 society we burn electricity all day and all night, more business are open 24/7, everything from drug stores to your local Mickey D's drive thru. Even when your appliances and electronics arent in use they draw small amounts of electricity, not too mention all the rechargable devices we have plugged in, cell phones, laptops, power tools and so forth. I dont think an extra hour of daylight saves us anything, sure its helpful for us folks who dont have garages and have to do our work in the natural lighting ;) I just think changing the time every 6 months is more detrimental than good...Its just one of those things that we got used to.. it always has been and seems like it always will be, so no questions it...like the excise tax we all paid on our phone bill to fund the spanish american war in 1898..took over 100 years for someone to end it and give us a little something back :rolleyes: http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/b.html

When you gain an hour in six months from now, take into consideration that for you to reset all of your clocks, and watches takes about a half an hour. Then when you have to change them again in another 6 months it will take another half an hour. So you are actually losing an hour a year doing this.
