Daylight Savings

Ahoy.

Just a reminder to everyone to put your clocks back an hour on Sunday.

For some that means an extra hour sleep, for others an extra hour clubbing

Re: Daylight Savings

I have been known in the past to not change the time, thus effectively being on time for work for a few months

Re: Daylight Savings

Not really

But seriously, it is so much easier to get up in Summer than it is in Winter.

Re: Daylight Savings

Thanks for telling, in-laws are in the UK, must keep it in mind when phoning this Sunday night.

Re: Daylight Savings

Here's a good reminder whether to forward the clock or put back the clock:

In the fall: The clock falls back one hour
In the spring: The clock springs forward one hour

So the next time you hear that daylight savings is coming up soon, you know whether to put the clock forwards or backwards.

Or the even simpler version which I was taught.
Spring forward, Fall back

Re: Daylight Savings

Thanks for the reminder! I could use an extra hour this weekend!

But I must complain about the phrase "spring forward, fall back".... How does that make any more sense than "fall forward, spring back"?
