Daylight savings time (U.S.) March 11

Quite a change from the usual changing of the clocks in April. So we lose one hour, but we gain extra daylight hours and the clocks change back later this time as well (November).

Daylight Time

I like DST too. I know some people wish it didn't exist. I have a brother who doesn't feel the need for it.

To make it easier, do what Buck and I do. We change our clocks early in the day (just after breakfast) in the areas of our house that don't matter about what time it is.

For example, our bedroom, on the stove, microwave, VCR, etc. All the things we have no concern with during the day of the change. Actually, I do change the time on all the other clocks. I just don't pay too much attention to the time of day at that time.

By the time we go to bed, we don't see any difference in the change. As a result, we don't get any "daylight saving time" jet lag.

Been doing this for years and have sailed into the new time change with no adverse effects.

I usually change mine when I'm going to bed so there's no need to worry about it the next morning.
