Daylight Savings Time Change?
« on: January 26, 2007, 04:16:58 PM »

I'm so clueless!  I didn't realize that Daylight Saving(s) Time was changing this year. Embarrassed

Is this good or bad? Huh?  I can't remember if I prefer Standard or Daylight. Don't Know Jeebus, is it time to go home yet?  When does Stroh Daylight Time go into effect?

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was passed by Congress and then signed into law by President George W. Bush on August 8, 2005. Under the new law, Daylight Saving Time begins three weeks earlier than previously, on the second Sunday in March. DST is extended by one week to the first Sunday in November. The new start and stop period begins March 2007.

The original House bill would have added two full months, one in the spring and another in the fall. According to some U.S. senators, farmers complained that a two-month extension could adversely affect livestock, and airline officials said it would have complicated scheduling of international flights. So, a compromise was worked out to start DST on the second Sunday in March and end the first Sunday in November.

LOL  Grin  Anytime you need it to.  That's the beauty of livin' on SST.

I didn't realize it was this year either, I guess I thought it was '08.

I believe DST is a good thing.

That reminds me of when we were trying to teach my little sibs about bedtime.  It was early summer at the time, so we said that when it gets dark, it's bedtime.  December comes along, and they thought it was bedtime by 4:30. lol
