Finally! I like it when we turn the clocks back. I'm sick of getting up in the dark, and I love it when it gets dark earlier. It means the holiday season is here.

I'm not a fan of the time change at all....My inner body clock wakes me up every morning at 4:15 am even before my alarm goes off weekends included...

For the next few days I will wake up at the same time only it will be 3:15 am which will piss GiGi off since she can't go back to sleep once I get up and get out of bed...

They should leave it alone. Standard time or Daylight saving time, I don't care.

I will admit I like waking at 0500 and the sun be not too far behind, then daylight till 2100. But, it can't be summer all the time.

For me going to work when it's dark and coming home when it's dark just sucks...

We have a p.o.s driver at work that has decided that it's not safe to load/unload equipment in the dark..He will leave the yard in the morning and go park somewhere until the sun comes up while the rest of us are doing our job regardless if it's light out or not..

This will be interesting next week when it gets dark around 5...We have been working a ton of overtime lately and if he gets to leave when it gets dark and we still have to work the shit is going to hit the fan...

He already gets away with a lot and uses the "minority card" to his advantage...

You can't fire him. He's a union man.

Thanks for the reminder, I don't mind DLS. It's been getting dark so early around here lately I'm thinking it's time to hit the rack at 2000 hours.
Besides my watch adjust for DLS time on its own, so all good.

Back in the day twice a year I would go to my parents house on the Sunday after the DLS change and reset the vcr and the clocks in their cars...

Thank God for updated technology...
