Yeah, I panicked on Monday thinking I forgot to change my clocks sunday morning–thankfully it’s tonight/early tomorrow morning.  God, I wish Mitch Daniels (our Governor in Indiana) didn’t mess with time changes, we didn’t used to have to manipulate our clocks…

@beekiss2: Does Indiana change at a different time than everyone else or something? I don’t get it…

@ddw:  We didn’t change our clocks in the past, but when Governor Daniels took office, he immediately changed that (he wanted to go golfing an extra hour during the fall).  So we used be with NYC(EST) during the winter and with Chicago (CST) during the summer.

Indiana didn’t observe DST until 2005, I believe. Now AZ and HI are the only states that don’t observe it. I’m from AZ, living on the east coast now, and I find DST to be completely absurd and unnecessary. Fall, not so bad. Spring, losing an hour of sleep? I vote no.

 Cool

I seriously felt like I was going crazy. I usually hear about the time change on the radio or the news but heard nothing this year. I was up at 1:30 yesterday morning worrying about changing our clocks back. Glad to know I’m not going crazy and it’s supposed to happen tonight, lol.

@beekiss2: How interesting! I never knew there were states that don’t observe it.

I love it that it gets lighter out in the mornings. It’s been pitch black when I leave for work, but now it’ll be light again. 🙂
