DST this weekend for US!!! your friendly daylight saving time reminder thread

Quote:
When we change our clocks

Beginning in 2007, most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.

In the European Union, Summer Time begins and ends at 1:00 a.m. Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It begins the last Sunday in March and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment.

> See more information about elsewhere in the world.

Spring forward, Fall back

During DST, clocks are turned forward an hour, effectively moving an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening.



Date change in 2007

On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, DST will begin on the second Sunday in March and end the first Sunday in November. The Secretary of Energy will report the impact of this change to Congress. Congress retains the right to resume the 2005 Daylight Saving Time schedule once the Department of Energy study is complete.
leave it to W. to srew things up.

Really?

I'm just the opposite -- I hate it when it gets dark so quickly in the evening.

I got confused and set my clocks ahead last night. As soon as I realized I was up at 7 on a Sunday morning, I went back to bed for two more hours!

i've been coaching in a basketball clinic every sunday for the past month and a half. today was the last sunday. the guy in charge never changed his watch, and let everyone out an hour early because he thought it was an hour later, allowing me to watch the entire colts-patriots game.
