Daylight Savings Time Ends on Sunday

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
For those who do the DST thing, don't forget to turn your clocks back 1 hour at 2:00 am Sunday (tomorrow).

I think for me its tonight??
I hate daylight savings time...I always forget and then I'm either one hour late or early for something

I always turn all my clocks back one hour when I go to bed.

I am still adjusting to this DST thing but I finally got the hang of it! I turn back all wind up clocks before I go to bed (x3 in the house, including alarm clock) because most of my digital clocks have built in DST and I land up waking up 2 hours late if I turn one of those back an hour!

Yup for us in UK it is tonight at 2am that the clocks go back!!!!! Don't forget like my mum did last year and arrived at work 2 hours early because she turned them forward!!!! Silly lady!

So, at 2am we turn it back to 1am, right? Not 3am? Tonight is when we get the extra hour of sleep and in Spring is when they take it away from us, right?

It works out perfectly for me. Gives me an extra hour of sleep because I have to work until Midnight tonight and get up and work at 9am tomorrow morning.

The change is at 3 a.m. here. Most of our clocks are radio-controlled, so we really only have to worry about our watches and the fax machine. I wonder how we can turn the kitties back an hour, though?

lol, I always wonder that everytime the time changes so far i've had no luck lol. I just make them wait for their meals according to the new time to help them adjust more easily- but I still get paws shoved in my face and kitty screams when their demands aren't meet.

I use an automatic feeder for breakfast, and have set it to open five hours from now, so that I don't get a paw in my mouth at 4 a.m. standard time. I think I'll just push the "opening hour" up 10 minutes a day for a week!

To that I say a rosounding NO! Standard time is the REAL time, it's the time that the earth rotates by. People born from like 12a - 1a daylight time, aren't even having their proper birthday. I think we should ALL stay on standard time and forget that silly daylight time. I HATE it.

Ah, but Hope, you're pretty far south. NYC is at the same latitude as Rome. I've spent time in Scotland, and it's still light out at 10 p.m. in summer, and here in Germany, sundown in June is about 9:00 to 9:30 p.m.. I prefer it being lighter in the morning, as I leave the house at 6:45 a.m., and am not often out late in the evening, but I can see what some people are arguing.

Ok, I am seriously confused by all of this (it's new in Indiana).

So- is it tonight/this morning that I set the clock back? Meaning, right now it's 9:30pm in Indiana. Will I be setting my clock back in 4 and a half hours? Or is it Sunday night/Monday morning at 2am?

There's a little quote that always helps me remember:

"Fall Back & Spring Foward"
.......in the fall, set your clock back an hour, in the spring, set it foward an hour

Oh boy...
I have a lot of clocks to turn back...

Sunday, October 29th at 2:00 am. If you don't turn them back before you go to bed tonight (Saturday the 28th), then when you wake up Sunday morning and see 8:00 am, it really will be 7:00 am

Got my check off list ready. 20 timepieces of various sorts -- a few of which will do themselves (computers) or I'll leave for Rob (VCR) -- getting ready for an extra hour of zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Thank you!!! I was having a hard time figuring that out and couldn't find the actual day of the change in the newspaper. Looks like I'll be working a 13 hour shift tonight!
