Daylight Saving Time steals mornings



Here it is again, 2 a.m. and the arrival of Daylight Saving Time. This robber of morning daylight takes away spring mornings, or certainly delays daybreak until 8 a.m. Now, we have to wait several more weeks for morning spring to return. I hate Daylight Saving Time.

And, it may not even be good for us. Time’s Healthland offers an analysis that reveals higher suicide rates and other serious issues tied to Daylight Saving Time. If we have to have DST, could we get Indiana moved to the Central Time Zone? Then it would be daylight before 8 a.m. Morning light. What a concept.

  • I agree, we really should be on central time, not eastern time. Still darkish outside. It will take weeks to get used to this, again…

  • For years we had the time that you want. I had an 8-5 job. Really, 7:30 to 5:30. I would drive to work in the morning and see the sun high in the eastern sky. Then, when I would finally go home, the sun would be low in the western sky.

    By the time I could get home and have a meal and change clothes, I would be ready to go out and enjoy the outdoors. I would get about a half hour and then it would get dark.

    I’ll take daylight savings time anyday!!!!
