Daylight Savings Time

  • Here in the States, tonight is the night to "fall back." Daylight savings time ends. The only good thing is that if you forget you'll be an hour early for the race instead of an hour late.

    Or, you could be like a few of us.....

  • British Columbia, Canada's westernmost province, has decided to ditch daylight saving time.  They switched back to Pacific Standard Time over the weekend, and will never switch again.

    In Ontario, we had to change our time during the presidency of George W Bush.  He thought that if there were savings to be made by pushing the clock back 6 months of the year, there would be more savings if you did it for 8!  Because Ontario's manufacturing economy is integrated with the just in time delivery economies of Michigan and Ohio (and more, I'm sure), we had to adjust our clocks to match theirs.

  • Jeri it's not all bad, over here we get an hour extra evening light during summer months as sunrise comes as early as 4am in height of summer. No one apart from shift workers get up that early so extra time at days end is welcome.

    I'd welcome double summertime to get more light on summer evenings. However at the last attempt to get this introduced the Scots, a small portion at just over 8% of UK population, managed to scupper our chances of having 2 hours extra on summer evenings.  :(

    The modern feeling is if you want to enjoy the sun, don't let some clock stop you.

  • I do have to take exception to Ontario being integrated with Ohio's economy. We haven't had an economy here in Ohio for a number of years now.  :'(

  • With the exception of the Navajo Nation, Arizona (USA) does not use DST. However, if your job entails working outdoors in Maricopa County, you ignore the seasonal times of sunrise at your own peril. The construction trades generally gather at their job sites and begin the workday at sunrise (or just before). This results in seasonal starting times that differ by two hours (or more) depending on the job type. In the summer, many choose to work straight through their "shift" without a lunch break, while consuming copious amounts of ice water.

    Fun fact, the Hopi Reservation, which is entirely within the Navajo portion of Arizona, does not observe DST.  So you can drive through the same state and change time zones twice
