    Default Daylight savings time

    What gives? If I write an order at 0159 my next order will be at 0105?

    Somehow someway I'm going to get written up by my hospital's documentation nazis.

    This is all a joke, cause I'm still on vacation Muwahahahaha.

    I hope you spent that unpaid hour surfing the internet. It would be so unjust if your employer didn't pay you for the full, honest 9 hour shift.

    I like the change. I get up at 6 every morning, but would like to sleep in until 7. I leave the clocks unchanged and just change the alarm to 7.

    I hate daylight saving time.

    With how short of time we are on Standard Time now, we need to simply go to DST year round. It isn't worth changing for just 4 months.

    My kids were up very early this morning.

    I just wish they would pick one (daylight savings or standard) and quit changing the clocks.

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    I blew it this morning. I woke up before the alarm went off. It was five to six and so I got up and turned the alarm off.

    I showered and got ready for work. As I am driving in I am wondering why the sports shows aren't on. Finally I get in here and no one is here. That happens, but not as long as it seemed no one was showing up.

    I think, is this a Holiday. Finally I look at my watch. Damn it. I forgot I was doing the 7 o'clock thing. I got here an hour early. I guess I will change the clock to the right time.

    It's messing with my golf game. It's pretty hard to get nine in before it gets dark.

    My wife and I have had this discussion. Being a morning person, I hate DST, so I'd prefer just to stay with standard time. However, more than anything, I hate the change.

    Here's the problem, as I see it. The current work and school schedule was picked on the basis of standard time (and the light-dark cycles that go with it). There's nothing mandating it, so if we switched permanently to DST, wouldn't companies just slowly shift work hours to later times, anyway? IOW, the workday would just slowly adjust to a later start and then we'd face the same problem of not enough light hours after work? It seems that naturally, people really don't like waking up and driving to work in the dark.

    Is that the case?

    I don't care about driving to work in the dark.

    I actually prefer taking my kids to school in the dark rather than having the sun in my eyes. It seems much safer. Perhaps not for people not driving east, but I'm sure lots do.

    Do you think schools would change their bell schedule to be later?

    How about everyone else. Does getting up before the sun bother you?

    I don't know what people claim, but I'm just pointing out what their actions show. There's no decree from God declaring a 8-5 workday--it's been passed down as the standard based on when people think they should be showing up to work. And when daylight hours are limited (winter), we're on standard time.

    Utah will have 2 separate bills before its state legislature this year.

    1 is to fall back and never spring forward again - staying on regular time. The second is to stay sprung forward and not fall back any more, staying on daylight savings time.

    They said that the country clubs are against one of them, saying it will cost them $24 million a year in lost golf time. I'm trying to decide if they're afraid of losing morning golfers, or evening ones.

    The only way that opposition would make sense would that they are against changing from what we are doing now. Which is daylight savings during the summer. So I would guess they are in favor of year-round daylight savings.

    My only opposition to daylight savings time is that few people seem to know when to use CST and CDT

    I think it's mostly that he gets annoyed when people say savings instead of saving. On the other hand, he still says whole nother, so he's a hypocrite.

    Only three more clocks to reset and I'm all caught up. At least in the spring you only have to add one to the hour on each one and you're done. The clocks that don't go backward have to go ahead by 23 in the fall.

    Oh wait! Four clocks. My Garmin GPS unit needs to know the timezone and whether or not daylight saving is in effect. The automatic setting seems rather broken. You would think that a GPS unit, of all electronic devices, would have the easiest time knowing what time it is wherever it is at. That's what I get for running a ten year old unit.

    Spring forward isn’t bad. I seriously don’t understand all the angst about it.

    Especially with kids. They sleep in an hour more than they normally would.

    Except this year, alas.

    I'm working on 5 1/2 hours sleep instead of 7 1/2 hours.

    I wonder what would have happened if you had set an alarm for 2:30 am today. Hmmm....

    It depends on where you live. If you actually look at the sunrise and sunset times, there is a great case for leaving the status quo. If we had daylight savings in the winter, the sun wouldn't be up (in the Salt Lake area) until about 8:30am. That's way late for kids trying to get to school. And sunrise in midsummer without daylight savings is about 4:30. Who wants the sun in their eyes at that time of day?

    I had a dairy farmer brother-in-law who hated the changes because the cows demanded to be milked every 12 hours or their udders would be painfully full. So he'd have to get up on their schedule.
