I get up in the dark whether its DST or ST so I see no benefit.

My calendar says it's this weekend. I miss not having to change clocks. Indiana was one of few states that didn't have to change clocks.

And I'll be getting up to pee around then so instead of going back to bed and just lying there, I'll just stay up and have breakfast and go to work.

I am NOT a morning person, and I really hate getting up in the dark much more than I hate coming home in the dark. DST was annoying enough when it started later in the year and ended earlier in the year. It's not even spring by the calendar yet for heaven's sake.

You know when the country was mainly agaraine(sp) it made sense. To me it doesn't
anymore.

It didn't make any sense for agrarian times either. Farmers wake up with the sun no matter what the clock says. The farmers near us actually say that the earlier time shift is really annoying. The ground is too wet to work, so now they just need to shift everything outside the farm and keep the farm running like it does in winter. It adds an hour to the work day.

I'm with gbste. The whole thing is a stupid idea. Let's just pick a time system and stick with it. Shifting is silly. Grumpy from sleeping an hour less and not seeing the strong sun when I get up.

I'm OK with picking a time and sticking with as long as it's DST! Really, March is the month when we gain the most light anyway, so the dark mornings won't last very long. It's Sunday - go back to bed! Take a nap! Get that hour of sleep and give up an hour awake. Nobody said it HAS to come out of your sleep time.

All in all, I have to say that I'm grateful for the extra light at the end of the day. There's no real logic to it, but somehow it makes me feel less trapped.

I blogged about the history of DST today, if anyone wants to visit my blog. It's not been observed nearly as long as I had though - at least not regularly. And I'm not quite sure it had as much to do with farming as most of us had thought. The articles read didn't mention that at all.

Interesting stuff. Thanks, BC. (No extra sleeping for me today. Sigh... Maybe next weekend!)

I can't really see that it makes any difference anyway. I mean... We aren't changing the total hours of daylight. We're just fooling ourselves into thinking that the day is lasting longer. It would make just as much difference if our employers required us to show up an hour earlier during the summer. We'd definitely gripe about that. Razz

In my case, it isn't fooling myself into thinking we have longer days; it's simply that the after-work hours are light longer. The before-work hours are always in the dark (or relatively dark) for me, no matter what time of year, because I leave for work by 6 AM.

Even with an alarm, I still move with the sun. It confuses me in the evening, then again I start
settling in the with night. Despite t.v etc.
