I hate losing an hour. It really screws up my sleep pattern. It doesn't help that I can't manually reset my cell clock. It doesn't auto adjust until like 48 hours later.:(

I live in the deep south, Georgia, we changed our time ahead Saturday night, it didn't get daylight here until almost 8 a.m. this morning, but we also had bad weather this morning, making the sun shining none at all.

I live in Wisconsin and can't stand Daylight Saving Time one bit! I read a rumor that Texas might do away with DST after this year. I wish that were true for everywhere in the world that still does DST!

i think part of the reason was so kids went to school when there was some light out there. Cannot remember.

it is only 2x a year, so I live with it.  It messes with my sleep pattern a little, but no biggie.

They say it is more than sleep, you can have a heart attack 20% of the population. So be safe, keep calm while it passes.

DST destroys my already-precarious sleep patterns. I would love it if Minnesota canned the time change.

I'm fortunate to live in a state that doesn't observe daylight savings, sorry for everyone else though, it sounds more miserable than just accepting that it gets darker earlier for part of the year. I don't get it?

I live in Maryland. I don't really care too much about changing the clocks, but I always enjoy looking outside at 6pm and it being bright out still!

Every year we have to change time forward or backward one hour again.  The government needs to leave time alone.

It has never bothered me, i just don't like  it, having to change the clocks all the time, In our state N.M.  the bill has passed the senate  to just keep it at daylight time all the time. Now waiting for the house to ok it. If it gets done. One year in a  resturant  where i worked i made sure to remind each and every one of the crew to change their clocks. well i got to work and did not have one soul show up. Oh my boss was so darn mad. We had a movie crew in and no way to feed them. so i took all of their orders and delivered it too them in the catering van so everything would be hot.  I got to keep the  large tip. $85.00 for myself.  That is the way the world turns.

I live in  MA. I love to spring ahead to get more daylight.I hate losing the hour of sleep. For some  reason it affects me for about a week.
Truth be told I wish we never had to change the clock at all. :rose: :peace: :wave:
