Spring Ahead - Daylight Saving Time To Return

10 March, 2018, 01:18 | Author: Priscilla Morrison
  • It takes some people a week to adjust to Daylight Saving Time

Health and safety officials also contend there's slightly less crime and fewer traffic fatalities during daylight-saving time, thanks to more light in the evening.

In theory, we get the hour of sleep back later in the year when we revert back to standard time, but everyone knows the truth: It's another hour of sleep gone forever.

Time to set your clocks, watches and appliances ahead one hour.

National Geographic documents some interesting facts about Daylight Saving Time in an article titled Daylight Saving Time: When Does It Begin? But what would happen if we simply abolished DST and used standard time all year - like Arizona and Hawaii? He believes many others agree, and has a bill headed for a state Senate hearing that could eventually make Daylight Saving Time last all year in California. It helps us manage our energy bills because it cools down earlier.

Telecommute, at least for a day or so if you can, and avoid other drivers who might be feeling the effects of a lack of sleep.




If anyone has an explanation for why it's necessary to go back to standard time in November, we'd like to hear it.

Count us among those believing that the twice-yearly time change still has a useful goal and is far less a headache for individuals than would be figuring out what time it is in different states based not only on their time zones but whether their elected leaders chose to adopt standard time or daylight time year-round.

A Stanford University study showed that fatal accidents increased on the Monday following the switch to daylight saving time. Also, cows needed to be milked every 12 hours and turning the clock ahead just meant they had to get up even earlier to do the milking. In 2007, Daylight Saving Time was extended by four weeks. This pushes your body clock later and can make it more hard to fall asleep and wake up the next day. But, for many people, the extra hour of daylight that will come Sunday with Daylight Saving Time (DST) will be energizing. But if Alabama joined them, along with other states whose residents are tired of the semiannual clock confusion, perhaps the feds could be persuaded that legislatures ought to have some say in whether they're on daylight saving or standard. Sunrise in D.C. would be late as 8:27 a.m.in early January.

Josh Liebman, a South Miami city commissioner and an avid runner, is in favor of daylight saving time. In return, the days will be full of light longer into the evening.

First proposed by Benjamin Franklin in the 1770's, to save candles, the idea was eventually embraced by Germany in 1915. Tacking on an extra hour or two of sleep a night is the way to catch up. Daylight saving is repealed in 1919, but continues to be recognized in certain areas of the United States. Winston Churchill was a proponent during World War II. But, according to CNN, a 2008 U.S. Department of Energy study reported that daylight saving time reduces annual energy use by only about 0.03%. Most countries are on it for six months.
