Well it' finally time to Spring forward.  

 

I always had mixed feeling over this, I think what I never liked about it was if I had to be on the water before sunrise or if I really wanted to do it right and be on the water before the sky started to get light I had to factor in the time to get up and get ready plus the commute is when I felt most strongly opposed to loosing that hours sleep.

1st few days are rough...  but after that it's nice to be able to fish later in the evening.

Smile.  With daylight savings time, sunrise is an hour later than it would be otherwise.

LOL

Sunrise will be always at same time no matter where are the hands on the clock.

Sun was/is/will be always running on its own time

Good point.  Unfortunately the rest of us are slaves to the clock.

Most of us

I saw on the news today a few states have opted out of changing which will cause confusion, maybe the pimple is getting a head.  I always hated it I had to be in work at 6am when I was driving thru deer country and just starting to get some daylight I would be right back into the dark.

Florida is about one step away from getting rid of the whole clock change idea. We will have daylight savings time clock setting all year long.

Why can't we take Eastern Standard Time, add 1/2 hour, and leave the clocks alone the rest of the year?  Simple solution.  Body can adjust to the light changes and there is no gaining or losing an hour of sleep.

Hmmm!  There is no tick tock clock by which the universe operates.  Only mankind worries about time.  I would guess that fish have no clocks other than light and dark skies.  What did folks do before clocks?  All artificial ideas to begin with.  VeeRay, good idea.  And, let's not get into that time and space are a continuum.  Now I am getting stupid, so I quit!   :banghd:

Florida is one of them. The bill passed, and hopefully I'll never have to reset the clocks on my cars and appliances again.
