Springing Forward

This past weekend, we advanced our clocks one hour forward to give our evenings a little more daylight. It's Daylight Savings Time and Sheridan Media's Judy Hagerott brings us this story.

I'll admit it, I just don't like change and this Daylight Savings Time just messes with me. I like my sleep and to lose one hour makes me tired and if I'm tired, I get grumpy. And I don't think I'm the only one. Listen to Janan McCreery who was visiting from Torrington.

I agree...not to the getting older part, but adjusting to a new time schedule. But for most folks, the trade-off between gaining an hour of daylight versus losing an hour of sleep is worth it at least for Maggie Groshart and Carrie Stahley.

"Evening—Smevening." Experts say that the Monday following Daylight Savings Time people are just a little bit more sluggish and are more accident prone on the workplace and in traffic. So be careful out there today.

But some people are totally against the time change like Diane Davis.

Jarod Martin feels very strongly about Daylight Savings Time.

I really feel sorry for the young mothers out there. Like the morning birds, babies are ready to get up and go regardless of the time change. Moms, like Heidi Edmunds feel the loss of one hour.

Now, if you're anything like me and have several clocks around your house, you're constantly awake trying to remember which clocks you set forward.

Worse, if you didn't set your bedside clock forward, you wake up, check your clock and then, while you're trying to go back to sleep, you're doing the mental math to figure out what time it really is. No wonder we're tired. But for some folks it's not a big deal. Here's Steve Thomas.

Wonder if he got up late? For Sheridan Media News, this is Judy Hagerott.
