Spring Ahead!

There is light at the end of the tunnel.

This Saturday night, we turn our clocks ahead one hour.

Daylight Savings Time is here. That pile of snow outside, which won’t melt until Memorial Day?

Just an illusion.

    Great. Another hour to look at the snow. Gone by Memorial Day? I love an

    Unless you live in Arizona. 🙂 We’re in the Mountain Standard Time Zone all year long, which means from Nov – March we’re on Denver time. But, starting Sunday, everyone Springs forward but us, so AZ will now be on LA time until November. I wish AZ would pick a time zone that observes Daylight Time and stick with it, or that the rest of the country would abolish Daylight Time. Doing business here and having to remember everyone’s time zones spring forward or fall back, while ours doesn’t is a pain in the patootie.

    • I once had an early flight out of Phoenix the Sunday morning that Daylight Savings changed — or didn’t change. I couldn’t understand why there were no notifications anywhere that the clocks were going to change. But I knew they were. So I was ready. I was also at the airport an hour earlier than I needed to be.

    Ah,yes, Dan, Phoenix does not change times I believe it is the only state that does not change the time. I only was aware of it because my brother lived there for years. I have always and still wonder why we have to bother with the time change anyway -who cares = just keep the time the same!!!

    It’s also a problem with sports TV. For example, NFL games during everyone’s DST start at 10:00 a.m. here, but once everyone falls back, they start at 11:00 a.m. in AZ; that same LA time for PDT and Denver time for MST. It doesn’t affect network TV programming, but does cable and all live shows.
    A small part of Indiana doesn’t observe DST either, I believe.

    I agree with Sandy Johnson. Enough with “falling back” and “springing forward”! I’m in Colorado (MST) where we dutifully change our clocks twice a year.

    Hawaii is the other state that does not change time year round. They have about 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. Like we say in Arizona, “who needs another hour of daylight here in Arizona???”

    I read recently that many European countries have also abandoned the time-change process, siting many health issues as a result of this.
    Seems to me that going with the “fall/winter” time for the entire year would work out just fine!
