We Change the Clocks this Weekend . . . Here's How It Might Affect You

  • It takes some people a week to adjust to Daylight Saving Time

Movements to either end daylight saving time or make it year-round spring up on occasion. "I think it's time to revisit this".

Florida passes daylight saving time bill, but what does it mean? .

There's nothing you can do to fully compensate for the sudden change that's being forced on us, but you can take advantage of what scientists have learned about body clocks to adapt as quickly as possible.

But it's not out of the question.

The bill that is headed to Gov. Rick Scott, which he can sign, allow to become law without his signature, or veto, is called the Sunshine State Protection Act. Northen areas of South America also do not use DST, while the southern areas like Brazil and Paraguay do observe the time change. The Kidder County school bus driver said he would like to see daylight saving time eliminated.

At 2 a.m. Sunday, Daylight Saving Time begins.

Here's a full Congressional Research Service report on the history of Daylight Saving Time and the surprising number of times the USA government has considered the matter. But youth sports leagues and families anxious that a year-round early sunset would shut down their kids' after-school games. It's been modified several times, including year-round "War Time" during WWII.

Chu said he has reached out to Rep. Ro Khanna, a fellow Democrat from Fremont, to pursue legislation in Congress should his bill pass. On Monday, there will likely be a 24% spike in heart attacks and a short-term increase in auto crashes, strokes, and potentially even suicides.

A CBS News poll a few years back (in February 2015) found that 23% of adults would prefer to have Daylight Saving Time year round, 23% would prefer Standard Time the full year, and 48% prefer to switch back and forth between the two. Farmers prefer standard time because the earlier daylight lets fields dry before they're out in them. Yes, every year the worst part of DST is that you need to hear about it all the time.

The change would only make sense if other states in proximity do the same.

Andrea Feathers, a Los Angeles lawyer who created the Facebook group "Save the Light", agrees.

I imagine quite a few people would be unhappy with this kind of daylight schedule, which would leave us with much darker evenings for most of the year.

While some states' government officials regularly argue the pros and cons, Daylight Saving Time is now 100 years old and remains in practice in every state except Hawaii and most of Arizona, according to USA Today . This weekend, we'll just be trying to get some sleep after springing forward. As you can imagine, it didn't work out that way.
