Daylight saving time tonight Posted on Saturday, March 8th, 2014 at 6:11 am. PTWritten by Dave Mark For those who are subjugated to this madness, don’t forget to move your clocks ahead one hour (from 2a to 3a, for example) tonight.You can read about daylight saving time here. JMA Only if you live in North America. Here in the EU DST begins last Sunday in March. In many other countries DST is not used. Dave Mark Interesting. I knew that DST was adopted by only a small number of countries, but did not realize that it kicked in on different times for each. Makes sense. JohnDoey Yes, it is a crazy US invention that costs billions of dollars and results in absolutely no benefit. Shawn King Actually, it’s a crazy New Zealand invention:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time#History johndhynes Why not just start and end work earlier in the summer? We didn’t have DST when I grew up, so all our TV shows would shift an hour when the rest of the country switched back and forth. Now I can never remember what time it is where my family lives, because time moves for me but stays still for them, except my sister who lives in Oz, where the relative time shifts TWO hours, but only when she’s in Sydney, not when she’s in Perth. And why on earth can’t we coordinate with Europe, and switch to DST at the same time? It’s hard enough to schedule business across the Atlantic, without throwing everything off several weeks out of the year, and for some reason they had to go and add more weeks recently.
