She didn't wake up in daylight one day and darkness in the next all winter though. It was gradual, which was easier to get used to.

And again, wait another goddamm month. I'm glad everyone can sit on their stoops in 45-degree weather and drink a beer, but c'mon.

I'm with Jeff. Easier to get ready for work while pretending you are still asleep if it is still dark outside.

I live for being able to come home from work, sit on my front step and have a beer in the sun.

i love the extra daylight in the evening but the converse of that is that shittiness in the fall of having to set the clocks back again, it might be easier just to have it at standard time year-round in terms of handling the transition

basically i just wonder sometimes why i live in northern latitudes, if i just moved somewhere sunny and further south i could have a beer in the sun any evening of the year

Be an adult and drink a beer on your porch before heading into work.

better solution: mandate 30-hour work weeks!

See, I don't mind leaving work in the dark. MY DAY IS DONE.

That's what makes it hard for me - it feels like the day is over and it's time to get back to the nest. I guess it might be easier to handle if the weather didn't feel like it was trying to kill me.

I have a SAD lamp but I don't know that it does much for me.

got out of work and it was still light and i was sort of in a good mood? maybe it's working

Every evening this week has been active and felt like blessings. Like a reprieve.

TBPF, DST coincides with the weather going from 0/teens w/ blistering wind to 40s (57° today!!). Decent weather would make me the early dark feel more benign.

I've been waking up (without an alarm) at 6:30 every day this week instead of 7:30-8. I credit the remission of the long winter depression.

I support DST. I like both changes. Last night I took a long walk home and got pizza, then opened all of the living room windows and listened to music had a couple of beers and watched the block. When we switch back I'll dig that too. Sleeping in and the darkness of approaching winter.

one year passes...

It has rained and rained and rained this week. Haven't seen blue sky since last week. Plus, I was sick.

What I'm saying is, that extra hour of daylight in the evening is going to be like a prison break.

we don't need extra daylight in hawaii, so my tuesday-morning conference call to seattle's moving from 8 AM to 7 AM ugh

I dislike it, because it is the advent of a punishing six months of summer

It's not for another two weeks in Europe. So that means the deluge of complaints and queries that accompanies LA getting into the office is just going to hit me at 4pm instead of 5pm.

Springbreak is an hour shorter.

It's extra confusing this year because I'm traveling between Austin, Indianapolis, and Chicago. Keeping track of the various time zones is a nightmare.

Who do I talk to about never going back to standard time after the DST change this year?

DST is superior in every way.
Standard is dumb and it sucks.

I'll say this: With the way this year has already been going, DST likely won't feel so disruptive this time around.

pplains, Saturday, 11 March 2017 16:12 (ten months ago) Permalink

the only thing good about DST is that it prevents the sky getting light at 4am in june

The thing I'm proudest of Dubya for doing as president is lengthening the period of time the US is under DST each year.
