Don't know if it was already posted but for those of us that will be affected remember to turn your clocks back. There was at one time some areas of the US that didn't change their time. Don't know if that is still the case or not. Also wondering with all of the fine folks in Canada, do you change times also ?

Yes we change our times as well.I Believe the Province of Saskatchewan doesn't change.Here in Manitoba,Alberta,B.C. we do change.Not too sure about the eastern provinces.I'll be glad for the chnage as right now it's Dark out at 8 am so the kids have been having to stand out at the road in the dark waiting for the bus to pick them up.Larry

I sure wish they'd drop the daylight savings time. Screws with the cows & me. I either have to alter my milking time, or make the cows adjust. I usually split the difference.

We can change our clocks, but the cows are still on their own schedule. Probably does take time to adjust. I want to thank all of our northern neighbors that replied to my post. Thanks for the info.

It is nice turning the clocks back to get that little extra daylight in the morning and getting one hour extra sleep but then it is dark by the time you get home from work. I am ready for spring.

This is my wife's favorite day. She gets to get back the hour of sleep that she lost last spring!
