Yeah, it's good for the 8 to 5 or whatever guy, and it does help my son to get the baling done in the summer when he is on 7-4 (which they change from 8-5 winter hours) from his "real job" at VDOT. But it means that I lose sleep every night, not just when it changes. I wind up working longer in the evening on the farm, then get up at 2 am to go to a farm to test when my body is telling me it is only 1 am. But, us farmers are in the greater minority and we don't count. And they will never leave it one way or the other, cuz then the city guys will be complaining about it and they will go and change it anyway. Would rather live in a state that doesn't change it....They even change it in many other countries too.

I don't work anymore but I still look forward to it. I have always got up early and will continue to do so and then enjoy that long afternoon and evening. Kinda nice getting dark at 9 or later. Not changing your clock accomplishes nothing especially when everyone else does. You're running an hour behind all day long. Hard to make appointments or keep appointments when two people are using two different times and you're the oddball. :lol: :lol:M-5":rj284z5n said:I for one am glad to see it . I work a day job and when it's dark at 430 PM in winter it sucks . right now it's black dark at 6 PM
My truck doesn;t, but I still could care less. Just one more of the vagaries of life. We still eat and feed by the same celestial clock, big deal.jedstivers":2b2qigrw said:It bothers me not in the least. My phone and truck clocks change on their own. That's the only ones I use.
I actually like it for summer cause parts stores aren't going to open till seven in the morning. If it didn't change a extra hour of sun would be burned up before they open. Lots of mornings something isn't running till I have parts.
