Hank Phillippi Ryan

Last year, Jonathan changed all the clocks. But I didn't know that. And so, I did, too.


In AZ, we don't go on Daylight Savings time, so we don't have to change the clocks, thankfully. However, it means that favorite TV shows are on a different times at different points of the year. Phone calls to and from relatives and friends in other places have to be adjusted to fit their time changes, and hope they remember about our lack of change. I do like that when I go to CA during DST, I don't have to change my watch, and I don't lose that awful hour coming back. I always blame being behind for a few days on losing that hour, too. Mostly, though, I like never having to change the clocks.

I knew there was something I liked about Arizona. And I love the vision of Hank and Jonathan, both trying to be responsible and considerate!

Elaine Viets

I love the time change, Donna. I like to take evening walks after a day's work and now I can walk at sunset, my favorite time of day.

Donna Andrews

My favorite time of day, too, Elaine, as my 365 photos will show. But one of these days, I want to take some dawn pictures...I think Daylight Savings Time makes that even harder.

I love DST and having more daylight at the end of the day. Gardening after dinner! Except for the mosquitoes, it's wonderful. Our cats are the household members who have a little trouble adjusting. They seem to spring back and fall forward. :-) Takes them a week to accept that certain things, such as Mom getting up in the morning and feeding them, will now take place on a different schedule.

Deb Romano

Daylight Savings Time "works" for me - I love having the extra daylight when I get home from work. I can walk after work or after dinner, even, if it's light enough. The sunlight also motivates me to get work done indoors, for some reason, that I never can get around to during Standard Time when it's dark out.

Truthfully, I don't understand why people get upset about losing ONE hour ONE day per year. We lose at LEAST one hour, anyway, whenever we get to bed later than usual, no matter what time of year it is!

Donna Andrews

Sandy, I confess that I mind daylight savings time less now that I have my own garden to putter in after dinner. In a high rise, DST was a lot harder to justify.

And Deb, you're right--we lose many more hours than DST costs us. But then, it's our choice when we go to bed later!

Jeffrey Marks

Ohio is talking about doing away with DST. However, I work in Northern KY and I blanch at having to figure out time changes constantly!

Donna Andrews

I am trying to imagine what would happen in this area if, say, DC decided to do away with DST while Virginia and Maryland kept it. Arg!


Sometimes I wish we had DST all year, then we wouldn't have to switch back and forth, and it might be light during the winter after getting home from work.
