Indiana

Somewhat recently Indiana changed its system to observe DST instead of being with AZ & HI. If you want to ruin a social gathering at church or in the neighbor's home, just bring up the subject on DST. It's Virginia and West Virginia 1861 all over again. You would think that your just mentioned that their first born was an idiot.

Just remember the time if an emergency responder asks you. Knowing the time is one of three questions often used to determine your mental orientation.

I would be in trouble also. Most of the time the best I can do in what month it is!

just wish they would leave it alone. Standard time, more daylight in the morning, DST, more in the evening which I admit is nicer in the summer. Still, it's a pain in the patoot. I can never remember how to reset the vehicle clocks. Won't matter after this year though. I'll be retired. Light I get up, dark I go to bed. Simple

What does iregardless mean? I don't see this in Websters.

As for DST, I thought it was great when I was doing 8-5 but now I make my own clock so it does not effect me any longer.


please explain how it lengthens daylight hrs. this makes no sense. the sun comes up and goes down ireguardless of what our watches say. days get longer but not because of the switching of dst from st.

Always puzzled me why, when we lived in Alaska, Alaska went along with the DST thing - in the winter it's dark most of the day, and in the summer, it's light most of the day.

I was there in the summer and the Sun actually made a small circle in the sky and never set . I suppose it has to do businesses dealing with others who rely on the knowledge of their time zone when doing business.

Hi Cliff. Yup - commerce drives it. Back when, we had two time zones from Anchorage to the west coast. Then they combined it to one, so we'd just be an hour off left coast time. And, youre also correct about the sun going in a circle overhead. Always fun to see. In the winter, it just goes across the southern sky, barely peaking above the horizon. That wasn't quite as much fun to experience...but it made you a genuine sourdough.

I recently bought a new car and just found out the clock has a setting to automatically change on DST. Cool. Now if only all my other clocks had this .

I always liked the old Indian saying describing DST as being similar to making a blanket longer by cutting a foot off one end and sewing it on the other end.
