Had me going for a moment there. I thought both my phone and my computer would try to update and wasn't sure if they had.
Over here it's the last weekend in March , not this weekend.

My husband changed some, but not all, of the clocks. When I got up, I changed them too. O_o

Maybe the nurses were friendlier since their shift last night was an hour less?

Woke up at 6:50 this morning and it looked like 4:50 outside. Tomorrow morning is going to suck.

Yes!!!! Can't they move it to April or May? Wasn't it in April or May?

*tera, Sunday, 9 March 2014 18:35 (three years ago) Permalink

I think it used to be early April. DST got extended in 2007 so there'd be four extra weeks of it.

I know, right? Also,

Wyoming Senator Michael Enzi and Michigan Representative Fred Upton advocated the extension from October into November especially to allow children to go trick-or-treating in more daylight.[11]

And yet, it's still dark anyway when trick-or-treaters come by. Great plan.

DST is an important milestone for us with extreme seasonal depression. It's something to look forward to, it gives us hope.

DST is an important milestone for us with extreme seasonal depression. It's something to look forward to, it gives us hope.

Since Sunday I've felt a marked change for the better. I had an immediate improvement in my outlook and I've been doing things I want/need to do each evening and day instead of barely hanging on. A lot of important and fun shit has gone undone since December.

I would be all for making DST the year-round standard. Standard time is needlessly difficult, especially for those of us on the very eastern edge of a time zone. Sunset at 4:15 is bad and if it's cloudy, it can get fully dark by 3:30. That's really hard for me.
