I HATE time change.  I say let it change this weekend, then leave it be!  I prefer morning milking in the dark so I have more daylight to get other work done.  I milk tomorrow morning, so I lose an hour.  I usually split the difference a few days to adjust the cows to the new schedule.

My wife said that was the hour she had set aside for sex, so I'm outta luck. I ask her what she'd planned for the other 50 minutes!

 

Speaking of time, I'm a member of the Time Travel Society, if y'all want to join, the next meeting is last Tuesday at 7 PM, see you there!

I'm like Bill 76 I don't change my clocks I leave them on summer time.  The wife changes the clocks in the house.

 

A few years ago I was taking our granddaughter somewhere and she noticed the clock in the my car was an hour off. I told her it was only off half the year.  She couldn't stand it so she changed it to winter time.  Well spring came around and about a month later I was taking her somewhere again and sure enough she changed the clock back to Summer time. :smilewink:   Well when she was old enough she bought that car from me and sure enough the clock was on Summer time!  She changed it.

I remember when those of us that lived in IN didn't have to worry about it. We stayed the same time all year round. I miss those days.

Makes no diff to me! Only thing it is now getting light out when getting out of work, and will now be dark again for awhile till spring moves on. Going to and from work in dark in winter is not that nice. How can one leave it all year? Means half the year you are Late for everything using that clock?  OR, are you just Early on the other half of year? hee!

If it's important to save daylight in the spring, summer, and fall, why wouldn't we want to save it in the winter as well?

I've wondered that myself! That's when we really need it! Maybe we can can it and open during the winter?

You're welcome to come to Saskatchewan any time--- we never change the clocks here. There are some who say we're the province where time stands still, lol!

I did not know that.

Be odd.  You would have to worry about time zones, then what side of day light savings time people are on.

 

If you are 2 hours behind someone, then they are an hour ahead normal you'd actually be 3 hours behind them.  Instead of the normal

   Yeah, it can be a pain sometimes. If it's 8a.m. here, it's 10a.m. in Toronto for instance. I've missed many a business' closing time by calling them at 4p.m. my time and getting a recording stating their business hours. As many of you know, farmers don't work by the  clock anyway.... we tend to keep the hours the weather dictates.
