Disruptions with Daylight Saving Time

istock-sundialFor the last few weeks, I’ve enjoyed taking my dog, Bisque, for a walk in the morning before I go to work. With the state’s insistence that we follow Daylight Saving Time, the before work morning jaunt will not be possible in daylight again for several more weeks. I hate Daylight Saving Time and it just makes no sense for Indiana to follow a New York time clock.

This dramatic loss of daylight in the morning disrupts the body clock and initiates a groggy, too-much-sleep feeling. But then I’m a morning person.

Indiana is a lot closer to Chicago, which is on Central Time. It’s actually light during normal morning hours in Chicago, something that would happen here if the state moved to Central Time. Hope springs eternal. Meantime, I hate Daylight Saving Time.

Researcher report increased incidents of heart attacks and suicides. The grogginess can be risky on the roads, too.
