Great for folks who work inside , not so great for folks who work outside . Dusty
Why wouldn't an extra hour of sunlight in the winter afternoon/evening benefit outdoor workers?But I can go either way. Just keep the time and don't change it twice a year. Perhaps we should split the differnce and split it half and hour between ST and DST?
it means you leave work an hour earlier while there is still light. (of course you get up an hour earlier)my point: if it's important to have an extra hour of evening sunlight in the summer when the sun is out longer, why wouldn't even be better to do it in the winter when the sun shines less? Seems like we do it backwards.2 weeks ago we had snow on the ground and last week the sun didn't go down until nearly 8 in the evening. WOW
The reason blue collar workers have as much as only doctors and lawyers used to have is because they bought it on credit. Most of them are spending 20 to 30 percent of their take home pay on interest. They are selling their tomorrow for things they want today. Some day the chickens will come home to roost and it will probably be their kids that pay the bill in lower quality of life.
DG-since it gets dark early in the winter, wouldn't it make more sense to keep DST in the winter? And never change off it?
I always cannot wait for DST as I finally have light after work to do things outdoors.GliderJohn
Interestingly, a bill has been introduced to keep New Mexico on DST:http://www.santafenewmexican.com/news/legislature/daylight-saving-time-bill-clears-senate-faces-hurdles/article_cdd7fbda-8df9-540e-8877-379f89a8a11b.htmlRich A
OP here , uh , you guys do realize that DST doesn't actually ADD an hour of daylight ??? ;D You folks that like it so much should just start work an hour earlier , let the rest of us sleep :D Dusty
Some of you are quite the suspender snappers, complaining about a freaking hour. Most of you probably have some sleep problem like sleep apnea or the like. The hour should not make a difference. It's not like any of you have been on a plane traveling for 14 hours.Getting screwed up over an hour once a year? Give me a break. :)
Next topic: Explaining the raison d'etre of a Discussion Board ..... It's so people CAN discuss this sort of trivia. Where else can we talk about it? In a Patent Office Report? The 10-Day AccuWeather forecast? The Memphis, TN police blotter?
Lannis, I do get the idea of a discussion board. You need to chill out. I did end it with a smiley. :)
Dusty, here's a thought. For guys like you that work outside and such, just start your day when it gets light and end it when you get done or runout of light, or after 8 hours or whatever. The retired folks can do the same, whatever pleases them.Us inside working guys may not even know when it gets light out, but it sure is nice to not get home in the dark in the evening, during late fall/early winter. I'm for DSL all year long.Extra note, our shop starts an hour earlier in the Summer so the factory workers can trade a cool morning hour for a hot aternoon one. Most guys say they would like to keep Summer hours all year long, but management won't go for it. It was a 65% to 35% for vote.
