Did You Reset Your Clock?
In the wee hours of the morning the time changed again. Time changes twice a year, and the change is called “Day Light Savings” in the US
. There are a few states in the US
that are smart enough not to fool with the clock, but not many. I know Arizona is one. I think there are a couple more.
I think at least a few countries around the world also use “Day Light Savings Time”. Not sure who they all are but I’m fairly certain that Great Britain does.
Supposedly fooling with the clock saves money. Your not supposed to use as much energy during the months that DLS
is in effect.
I have never figured that out. How is changing the clock by one hour going to save utility cost? In the spiring when we are on “Day Light Savings”, you get an extra hour of day light at the end of the day. You get an extra hour of darkness at the beginning of the day. Either way you are going to need your lights on for the same amount of time. The only difference is what time of day you have your lights on.
Personally I think the whole purpose of “Day Light Savings” is to give golfers more time to play golf at least in the US
