The answer Sarah is NO, The theory is we save energy (I do seem to reacll the logic and it seemed sound) but the same task could be accomplished by leaving the dang fool clocks alone and simply asking busineess to do something like this

Hours: November 1 to April 1 (or whatever date you like) Nine to Five

And from April fools day to All Saints day Dolly sings "Working Eight to Four".

I live here so I can say, "Hi in the middle and round on the ends." Old people hate change. Whether we change the clocks or change our work times, OLD people won't like it and complain about it over their morning coffee at McDonald's. That's why I don't mind Daylight Savings.

The Swedes have been keeping track of spring forward causing a 5% increase in heart attacks in the first week.

If that works in reverse, some of us might croak next week.

My sun dial sticks at one time at night. The neighbor says it could be my yard light causing the problem.

Either you didn't change your clocks or your profile doesn't have the correct time settings. It's under options.

Or, you could be kidding.

My iPhone was doing that on Sun morning. I closed out IRV2 and reopened it and all is well.

That was what we did when I worked for an electric/irrigation utility. In the summer, we went in early to miss the worst of the heat.

Yes, it is time to 'fall back', later than it was when I was younger.

Good idea to remember to change the batteries in your smoke/CO2 units.
