This is a tribute to my friends who have trouble with the whole Daylight Savings Time concept and changes it causes to their life. I am thinking of you today.
What’s up with Arizona and Hawaii deciding to opt out of the whole thing? Do you think we could get cities together to vote and decide to opt out also? Maybe just do the vote by house…tell people your house is not participating and then run on “normal” time all year. It could work to your advantage when people say you are late as you could reply – no, I am in a different time zone.
We often travel over the week-end when the time changes. It is confusing and disturbing to change time for the flight to a country in a different time zone, then determine if you need to change the clock again if the are participating in DST, and then change it again going home.
It makes me tired thinking of it, so I often just take a nap, take off the watch, and decide to worry about it when I get back home.
Here’s to all the people dealing with DST drama this week-end. I’m thinking of you.
Some facts about DST for you…
Did yo know if William Wilmett had his way, we would have advanced the clocks 20 minutes on Sunday in April for four weeks in a row. I think we’d have to shut down all schedules for the month and get back at it in May if we had used that plan.
