Spring Forward Tonight

Losing one hour of sleep for one night is worth it to have that extra hour of daylight at the end of the day. Morning people probably don't like it but us people that hate getting out of bed too early enjoy the extra daylight at the end of our day.

Just curious of those that don't like it...which way do you prefer it?

In the Summer time, it gets dark at 9PM with DST. Without, it would be dark at 8PM.

In the Winter, the sun rises as late as 7:45AM. If we had DST in the Winter, it would be dark until 8:45AM.

I would prefer DST all year long but I understand why many people wouldn't, so switching back and forth makes sense to me.

I would prefer having an hour of light after work in the winter, assuming I could get out at 5:00! I drive to work in the dark year-round as it is. However, it wouldn't be good for the kids to be waiting at the bus stop in the dark. As much as a pain it is, keep springing forward and falling back.

Just move it back a 1/2 hr and leave it alone forever.

Who cares if its dark for another hour in the morning. Most people are at work or sleeping. You don;t need the sun up at 8am in the winter. Everyone likes the sun up until 9 in the summer though

I don't care driving to work in the morning in the dark if we can keep the women off the road. I can care less either way but the first week of spring forward is getting a bit tougher each year I get older for that first week....

I have hear the argument about the kids at the bus stop in the dark till I am sick of it . My answer do not change the time to get daylight, just start school an hour later. Problem solved and we do not have all this time change every year. I really like it being light till 9 in the summer time.

Nothing more depressing than it getting dark by 5pm. Spring forward FTW

I think that's a reasonable compromise also.

I don't like daylight at 9 PM in the summertime, it's harder to fool your body into falling asleep if you want to hit the sack early then. It benefits the kids who are out playing, though.

Has anyone quantified the cost to businesses for making the adjustment 2x a year, when it comes to tracking employee workhours and you have workers on all 3 shifts?
