At 2:00 am xDT, it falls back to 1:00 am xST. Fill in the "x" with your own time zone, such as PDT, EDT, etc.
Spring forward, Fall back.
As discussed in this thread before, many time devices now change from DT to ST all by themselves. But even if every device you own does this, you will still wake up on Sunday morning perhaps not realizing that it's an hour earlier than you thought
And don't forget to check the board settings regarding whether Daylight Time is in effect.
it's an interesting piece of journalism and the style makes it funny, too. i am utterly surprised to hear people say DST was introduced for the farmers. how can they be so stupid? of all the people in the world, farmers are obviously the ones who couldn't care the less because their work is linked to sun's presence and whether dawn and sunset are according to your watch at an earlier or later hour it doesn't change one bit for them.kfgg wrote:I'll just leave this here. I hate the end of DST.
however, daylight saving does have a clear purpose or at least it had a purpose when it was introduced and it made spare the equivalent of million of euros every year: it is based off the hours in which most people wake up to go to work or school and the hours in which most people return home in the evening after work. basically, more daylight is needed in the morning in winter, because the majority of people wake up around 7 and return home at an hour where it would alreasy be dark regardless; while more daylight is needed in the summer in the evening, becuase there is already sun in the morning but you can spare an hour of electric lights in the afternoon. whether it still makes sense in 2016 i don't know but i guess it does because otherwise we would have already gotten rid of such a nuisance.
We return to Standard Time on Sunday, November 05, 2017.
Or, rather than have Standard Time all year, it could be Daylight Saving Time all year. In any event, here's an article about it:
Then an hour later will be 2:00 ST. Enjoy the extra hour
Daylight Saving Time returns again this Sunday, March 10, 2019.
Set all non-automatic clocks ahead one hour. And prepare to lose an hour of sleep! Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 am on Sunday.
