    Did they change standard time/daylight savings

    I swear it is a week later this year. Halloween was always dark. But when I looked to see when Daylight savings ends it is Nov 4th. Am I wrong has it always been in Nov?

    This is the first year they have the change at the "new" time. It was earlier in the spring and later in the fall. So no - you aren't losing your mind......at least not about This!!!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming: "Yeah Baby! What a Ride!"

    So I looked it up and it turns out this is an experiment to see if we can save energy. I am always late on news like this! I would be bummed if i was a kid on halloween. They are going to loose an hour of darkness for trick or treating.

    it was yet another bad decision made by the bush administration. Daylight savings time buys us nothing here in the Northwest....grumble grumble grumble.

    daylight savings

    Being from Canada I'm used to daylight savings..

    The WA gov't introduced daylight savings to Western Australia last year & the population thinks the world will come to an end becuase of it!!! I can't believe all the whingeing because of it. Some of the arguments were really really pathetic.

    Well just think about it. "Daylight savings" time... during the time of the year when the days are LONGER? That means they save up the daylight while we're at work... so they can sell it back to us for the rest of the year.

    I hate daylight savings. It means I have to get up an hour earlier. Can't wait till it goes back to normal and I can sleep an extra hour.

    And can I add, thanks so much USA for making DST longer because of course we just had to follow along here in Canada. :P

    When we lived in AZ, we didn't have daylight saving time (by the way, no "s" at the end of saving). I really missed getting that extra hour of daylight in the summertime evenings. Although, I suppose another hour of daylight would have meant we might not get down into the 90's for the low . . . No, I really don't miss AZ!

    We start our DST here at the weekend. I am soooo looking forward to being able to get 50km of hills or a proper dirt ride in after work.

    This was an energy bill passed by CONGRESS in 1995 with a lot of democratic support. No need to blame one man for this.....politics is just that...politics. IMO it's a good idea.
