It’s That TIME Again- Like It or Not!

Time change at the start of Daylight Saving Time

It’s time to change the clocks again.

Daylight Savings Time (DST) also called Summer Time (in some countries) happens tonight.

Spring forward… Fall behind.  About 70 countries have Daylight Savings Time (DST) in some areas of their country.  The premise behind DST is to move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening.

This means it will be darker when we get up … but we’ll have more light at the end of the day.

Right now in the Denver, Colorado area– the sun rises at 6:16 am and sets at 6:04 pm.

Tomorrow – the sun will rise at 7:15 am and set at 7:05 pm.

Japan, India, and China are the only major industrialized countries that do not observe some form of daylight saving.

Love it or hate it — we’re stuck with it for now. Daylight Savings Time … tedious and frustrating or energy-saving and worthwhile?

  1. I hate changing the clocks. I like the longer days but I really wish we could just stick with the time as it is — it flows by too fast anyway. Then again, I don’t wear a watch nor do I work for anyone else that I have to worry about the time, but it is the principle, just leave it alone 🙂

    By the way, just thought I’d mention that I joined classyrose101’s random blog challenge 2011 and that is how I discovered you. She had a great idea and I’m discovering some great blogs as a result.

    • How wonderful not to wear a watch! I am ready for someone to step up and put this on the chopping block along with all the other things getting cut in this crazy economy!

      Thanks for visiting — I added your blog to my WordPress Postaday2011 blogroll. I enjoyed reading your blog as well!

  4. Yes, it is that time again and I for one know that my psyche is not fooled. I did not gain anything. The powers that be shift time in their own mind but we know better! My internal clock cannot be reset; the habit of getting up at a certain time can be changed; time is not circular and will did change. Time is linear and cannot be bent to suit someones fancy.

    Well, that is my theory, anyway and my rant against this springing forward and falling back!

  5. Nowadays, I don’t care anymore. While I was still working, it was a whole different story. The computers take care of themselves, but it’s amazing how many clocks there are … the microwave, the coffee machine has one…

  6. Thank you for the reminder and especially the history link! Always wondered who started it all and why. Good Ol’ Ben – my hero – following his own advice of a penny saved is a penny earned. LOL! Thanks to for reading and commenting in my neighborhood.

  7. Thanks for the Pingback… this first entry was a mistakenly published so the correct one is Who’s saving with “Daylight Saving Time”. I appreciate your comment and support. I loved your post and am a follower and look forward to reading more from you. DST…. like you said ready or not! :-O
