Tommorrow morning, at 3 o'clock am, the "summertime" is ending in europe. So tommorrow we can sleep one hour longer :smilewink: Therefore you must put the clock one hour back and 3 o'clock in the morning will be 2 o'clock..

 

Are you practising this bs in America, too?

I think that it happens for us next weekend. We can finally find that hour of sleep that we lost last spring.

Yes, we do the twice yearly time change. I'm not sure when it takes place this year. In the last 10 years they have moved the dates a bit.

Daylight savings time (or daylights losing time), depending on which way you look at it, starts November 2.

Here in MN, it is dark until 7:30 am. We have to wait until 7:00 am to start work, and I'm getting sick of it. When DST kicks in, we can start at 6:30 for two or three weeks, then back to 7.

 

I want a new system. Whenever the sunrise is, that's 6 am. Year around. Dark at 3:30 pm in the winter, light until 11pm on the 4th of July, whatever. The 7 am (or God forbid, the dreaded 7:30 am start) make me feel like a back teller or something. Cushy office job.

  :wallbanging:

Working 9 to 5, what a way to make a living,............. :dancingbanana:

The only wish I have for time, is to slow it down a bit, life is steamrolling!

Oh yeah summer time is ending here as well. The working outdoors daylight hrs have greatly dimished here as well. Problem with the time change is that when it does change sure we have a extra hr in the morning but in the evening it's dark way to quick. I'am a slow starter in the morning and like to work a bit later so it kinda doesn't work in my favor.

It messes me up big time getting light at 730. I wake up at 5 and I feel like I've been up half the night when the sun starts rising at 730

I have the same problem as well.  Slow start but once I do get going then I will keep going. 

 

I'm bad about not resetting my clock in the truck when the time switches.  My granddaughter got in the truck, when she was younger, and said "Grandpa your clock is wrong!"  and I replied "It's only wrong for 6 months then it will be correct."  You should have seen the expression on her face.  She fixed the clock.

Be honest. You didn't know how to change it and had to have your little granddaughter figure it out. Lol.

One more benefit of retirement; I've got a watch around here somewhere. Maybe it's in the junk drawer!

I dont care when they change the clocks, I have felt like going to bed an hour earlier for about 2 weeks already. Same way with the other end, I wake up earlier about 2 weeks before they change the clocks
