Truthful Tuesday — It’s About Time

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. This week Frank wants to know…

Do you live in an area that participates in Daylight Saving Time?

Yes.

In relation to your previous answer, are you glad to live where you do, or do you wish you lived somewhere that does the opposite in regards to DST?

I’m glad I live where I do, but I don’t see the point of having to change clocks twice a year and would just as soon have one time year round.

Assuming you live in an area that does participate in DST, if it were to be abolished, would you rather your area decide to stick with Standard Time (Autumn and Winter), or leave Daylight Saving Time (Spring and Summer) in place all year? Please explain. If you don’t live in an area that participates with DST, would you be okay if the decision was made to start participating?

Truthfully, I don’t care that much one way or the other. I’d just prefer not having to go through the hassle of dealing with a time change twice a year. That said, if forced to choose one or the other, I’d probably go with Standard Time all year long. I’m up pretty early each morning and I think I’d rather have it get lighter earlier than stay lighter later.

    I prefer for time to remain the same all year. I agree with you, Fandango, that either way would be fine — sticking with DST or Standard Time all year — even if I might lean slightly one way or the other.

    Several Australian states have Daylight Saving Time. It was introduced in the early 1970s I think. I remember being very annoyed about it at the time and refusing to change my watch.
    In South Australia I didn’t really like it because while many enjoyed extra hours at the beach etc after work for me it was just more hours to be hot and uncomfortable in. Here in Tasmania where the climate is more temperate and now that I don’t have to go out at six or seven in the morning to go to work I don’t mind it as much.

    It does seem silly to change the clock twice a year… either time would be fine with me.
