    I hate "daylight savings"...

    I remember when they didnt turn the clocks back in 74-75!--I loved it,didnt get dark a 4pm,it was dark when we went to get the bus for school,but I didnt mind that too much..I wish they would just let nature take its course,and stop messing with the clocks!...this winter seemed to take forever,our worst one for snow,cold,and duration yet...at times I was not sure I'd live to see spring,after shovelling so much,and drinking to pass the boring hours--wouldn't suprise me if I had a mild heart attack :frown1: .

    Seems AZ is the only state with enough common sense to not mess with time!--ANOTHER good reason to move there! :laugh:

    Like I said in another post, we're just to lazy to change the clocks twice a year. One less thing to have to think about.

    I sure wish they would get rid of the whole thing, of course if I opened my hole saying that around here, I'd probably get my ass kicked by some farmer. By the time I left Hawaii after being there for three years, I really hated having to put up with changing the clocks and after last weekend, I really hate it now.

    After living in AZ for six years and then moving back to Utah I really didn't appriciate how different it really was. I'm all for getting rid of it and just sticking to one time all year

    I like having more daylight in the evenings. More daylight is a good thing in my honest opinion.

    Even though it's not as long, even without the time change, there's more daylight in the summer in these places.
