Daylight saving time begins Sunday morning at 2 am.
Dont forget to set your clocks before you go to bed for those that observe it.

Spring forward, fall back.

I hate it when it is pitch dark by 6pm!
In the beginning there was the command line.

Thanks for the reminder Eyesee

Actually, we're switching to Standard Time - at least in the U.S. , which is now less than half the year.

I HATE this clock changing business. Especially when we switch to Daylight Savings Time in the spring. I get crabby, and it takes the entire time of being on Savings time to adjust, and then we switch back to Standard.

And just why they call it "Daylight Savings" is beyond me as it saves neither daylight nor energy. A study was done in Indiana after most of the state went to this clock-changing nonsense a few years ago, and they found that energy consumption went significantly upwards. The article was in the Bloomington edition of the Herald-Times.

~ OB who is ranting about this - IMO - stupid, idiotic practice.

Yup, another thing is, the crops and the farm animals don't seem to pay much attention to what time the clock says it is.
