    Where I'm located it would be better for us to be on Mountain Standard Time and leave it all year.

    We're about 500 miles due east of Portland, Oregon and on the same Pacific Time Zone.

    Now that I work from home and set my own hours, I don't think I'll even notice.

    I'll reset a couple of clocks and get on with my life. I'm not understanding why it's a big deal.

    I work afternoons 2 - 5 (ish) four days a week. Soon as the clocks go back I spend the last hour of each shift searching for addresses in the dark. The girl who does the morning shift, starting at 9, doesn’t much notice. I detest it!

    Happened here at 2 am this morning, clocks back an hour. We should decide on one or other and leave it. I’d settle for Summertime, GMT + 1 hour. Hate the nights closing in early.

    You're off by about 50 degrees F. 166 degrees would be really hot. Record breaking for that matter.
    47 degrees Celsius = about 116 degrees Fahrenheit.

    I'm not a fan of DST. A holdover from another time another generation.

    And this from Wikipedia for those who want to know when it began in the US. As for the reasons why, this is but one as there could be others since it was political decision.

    1918
    Daylight saving time was established by the Standard Time Act of 1918. The Act was intended to save electricity for seven months of the year, during World War I.

    If I could find an Attorney to take my case, I would File Suit for Damages.
    So far, no good.
    Every Lawyer I have talked to said that even if I did win, they wouldn't give me the Time of Day.
    NOPE!!!

    Huh, who knew.....?

    The Power of Circadian Rhythms

    Night often brings life. Evolution has timed hormones to trigger labor and birth at night, when the mother and her newborn would be less vulnerable to predators, according to Darwinian (evolutional) theory. Indeed, studies have shown that natural deliveries occur more frequently in the hours after midnight than during the afternoon.

    Yes. Woke up one morning in Phoenix, Arizona at 6:00 am. It was 106 degrees (F).

    a man with one clock knows what time it is, a man with more than one clock is never really sure.

    I don't mind DST once it hits about a week after the spring forward. I'm a zombie for a week after the change.

    Fall back is nice because I can sleep in a little. Much appreciated.

    Daylight Savings needs to go away. Just my opinion.

    Doesn't affect me physically- but it presages a long, dark, winter. I used to hate driving around, in decreasing visibility; nowadays, I can just plan around it.
    Seasonal mental health problems are real. I've met and worked with plenty of folks who have had to make adjustments- sometimes take medications- to manage the effects of low light and lousy weather. Current international health restrictions will make this problem a whole lot worse.
