March 27, 2016Many of our members stay up until 2:00 a.m. to change their clocks at exactly the right time
Areas not using Daylight Saving Time (DST):
Not all areas of the U.S. are covered. Most of Arizona does not use it. Here’s an article about this: http://www.timeanddate.com/time/us/arizona-no-dst.html
Other areas that don’t use it are Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
Indiana was another one until 2006.
Daylight “Saving” or “Savings” Time?
The above is an excerpt from: http://www.webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/b.html
DMC assistant vice president Grover Click was in Vienna a few years ago on the
day clocks changed. He visited the Uhrenmuseum (clock museum). He took
this picture of a staff member chaining a clock. She had 3,000 clocks to change.
Topics for dull discussions:
• Effects on our lives from losing the hour; compare this with gaining the hour in the fall.
• Whether you like DST or would prefer that we don’t have it.
More info: Wikipedia has a 21-page article about Daylight Saving Time . . . which comes in handy if looking for something dull to read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time
