It seems like a nice idea to get an extra hour but I don't really like the change and when it goes back in the spring it's so hard. One year we showed up to church and were in a panic because nobody was there until someone drove by and told us it was daylight savings LOL!

So happy the sun will be up before I leave for work...so sad it will be dark by the time I get home. I guess it's payback for the abundance of light all summer but dang these short days stink.

I like the extra hour. I like it being light earlier in the morning so I can go to the park for a run.
I do NOT like it being dark when I leave work. I do NOT like not being able to ride my bike after work.
I'd actually be fine joining AZ and opting out!

Daylite savings time was instituted by FDR in WWII. Ostensibily to add daylite working hours in the defense industry. Never made much sense to me and I am glad to live in AZ where we do not partipate. Who needs more summer daylite when its 120 degrees out there?
I am so glad about it being lighter in the morning, but I will miss my hour of sleep. Fall Back for Fall Daylight Savings Time Change, Spring Forward for Spring Daylight Savings Time Change is how I remember what to do. I can never remember actually when it happens, so thanks for posting about this! Maybe I can ride my bike if it isn't too, too cold in the mornings earlier now!

I can't wait! It's the time of year I can actually start to fall asleep without staying up all hours of the night lol. The weather helps a bit too! We also start all our fun hang out events earlier because we do bonfires and instead of waiting until 9pm we start at 7 or 8 now!
