Don’t forget to change your clocks if you live in a place that observes Daylight Savings Time. It’s so much easier nowadays than it once was…
In Europe we don’t change until the end of the month. It’s only you poor Americans who are so afraid of winter that you change the clocks before the snow has even thought of melting.
‘Poor Americans’?I thought it was just Indiana that was really bad.Is it true that Indiana has 2 different time zones, and is out of step with neighbouring states?It is much better to live in Britain, which gives us the right, as Britons, to have Greenwich Mean Time, and the rest of the world has to adjust to fit us.
Must agree Britain has benefited from our invention of time, but it’s a shame we did not think of franchising it. We could levy a maintenance charge on the ‘poor Americans’, every time they have to do a reset.
End of March? Beginning of March? It is still an hour of sleep lost. Or is it merely misplaced until autumn? In any case, the extra hour of sunlight threatens to burn up the crops. I don’t know why they do it ;)It is true that until 2006 Indiana did not participate in Daylight savings time as well as all of Arizona except the Navajo Nation. As a programmer, this has always been a pain to code around.
@ Steven Carr -Parts of Indiana are on U.S. Eastern Time, parts are on U.S. Central Time. Prior to around 2005, the only parts of Indiana that observed Daylight Savings Time were the counties near Cincinnati, OH, and Louisville, KY. The whole state does now, I believe. Kentucky is also split between Eastern and Central time, but has always observed Daylight Savings Time.
