Day Light Savings Time

Does anyone know when day light savings time starts again? I haven't a clue but thought it happened in the month of September but maybe it's October, I'm not sure. I hate it when it happens for it screws me up for about two or three weeks but the damned government of ours started it so they'd have more day light after work to go golfing. What a reason, eh? It's hard enough to get used to the days getting shorter in the winter, so why make it worse? Does it mess you up when the time changes? Do you remember how it goes? My mom told me how to remember. It's Spring Forward and Fall Back.

Yup! Don't want to be an hour early to anything especially a doctors appointment when they make us wait so long as it is.

I just asked this question today and no one could answer me. I also can't stand when it happens. I never heard the golfing reason. I did know Bush decided to change it while he was in office, so know I have no idea.

Oh it had been going on waaaaay before Bush was in office. It's been going on in my childhood days and I'm 45 years old. According to whiteheather, it changes again on November 1st. Kind of late in the year this year but it is what it is, ya know?

[b]It is never on a Monday in the USA. ALWAYS on a Sunday: Daylight Saving Time Will End on November 1, 2009 [/b]During Daylight Saving Time, clocks are turned forward an hour, effectively moving an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. www.squidoo.com/daylightsavingstime BTW the end at 1200AM SUNDAY Nov 1, 2009. That why we always turn our clock back At bed time on the Saturday night 11:59PM.

I guess I'll see the answer after I reply, as I work through email notification. I wish they'd just leave it alone! Did you know that pedestrian fatalities increase when the "fall back" the time in Autumn? That's unacceptable to me. You could just tell them to stay home or adjust their schedules but many working people are time-trapped. It's an outdated procedure that was originally meant to give people more time to work on farms.

Nov 1st at midnight! Now you know! lol I was told the reason for our time change is for the government to have an extra hour at the end of a work day so they could play golf. Who knows what the real reason is but I hate it nonetheless because it screws me up for about two weeks before I'm righted again.

My Grandpa told me about the farm theory. It didn't work well for them then--he said they adjusted to the seasons way before the government decided their time schedule. He also said nothing good ever came from the government! I think he was right.

I read some of the responses to your discussion. I am wondering what I'll be doing on November 1st, hmmmm... I think it might mess my mind up when the time changes, lol. I am always blurry when it comes to things like this.

It messes my mind up too when the time changes and even more so with these longer nights and shorter days. Not to mention the cold dry air. Nope. Not looking forward to it at all.

I just looked it up on my calendar and it says that it is on Nov.2. That seems a bit late. I looked it up also on the internet and it says the very same thing. It seems like it should be in September or October. I have heard of the spring forward and fall back also.

Really? Then all of us above have it wrong, but just by a day though. whiteheather said it changes again on Nov 1st. I've always known it to be in September or October. It's strange to be so late in the year this year. It's really going to mess up Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. Maybe next year it'll be earlier like we're used to.

hi catsanddogs it is sometime in October I believe, it used'to be earlier like September but they changed,anyway I like the fall one as we get our hour back again. they should have left it alone to start with, as I have never understood the reason for daylight savings time anyway. None of us peons ever wanted it , so who did come up with the idea and why?

My understanding is that the government started it so they had an extra hour to go golfing after work. I too like the fall one because it's the RIGHT time. whiteheather said it changes again on Nov 1st this year. I've always known it to be in September or October. It's strange to be so late in the year this year.

we had that way way back during the times there was energy crisis in my country. the time was adjusted one hour earlier than the normal time. i had not much big adjustments to that. it did not change my lifestyle or any thing in my life. i was yet a first year high school back then. maybe from other people in those times it affected them but i think not much people were affected. but just as you said, we have longer nights now and shorter days.

It is very hard to get used to when we have to readjust to our time change. It takes me about two weeks to get used to it.

I can't agree more Jo! I wish they'd leave the time alone once and for all but you know how our government is, what they want is what they get, to hell with everyone else. The time change is on Nov 1st at midnight.

yep i used to have to remember that saying all the time when living in ohio. the kids would sometimes be late for school, etc. i'd watch news, ask friends and neighbors and so on. these days people where iam never have to remember as Arizona never changes the time. only time we need to know is when calling long distance.

Arizona doesn't change their time? Wow, I know there's one other place, I think up north somewhere that doesn't either. I'd be confused if I lived on the border of either states. lol Can you imagine that? to go into the next state, it would be this time and home state to be this time. Bizarre. Well the person above you checked the internet and found it to be Nov 2nd. All the others above think it's Nov 1st.... a day difference....
