    You are correct. My parents live in Surprise, about an hour outside of Phoenix. I'm forever double-checking the time difference when I call them. "Is it two hours or three today? I forget"

    I think Indiana varies by county if they participate.

    I don't wanna play. I think I'm going to take it upon myself to not practice this stupid stupid thing. Daylight savings is really a cult that wants us all to worship the sun.
    Move along, nothing to see here...

    Oh wow - can you IMAGINE??? Working in one county and living in another, only one of which participates?

    That would make me nuts. "N-V-T-S, Nuts!"

    For a while there it was about the upper half of the state that did not participate. (I have family there.) A lot of them have gone over to one side or the other now, though. (Like Eastern Time or Central Time - no more switchy.) Used to drive ME nutz when I was attending college in VA and my parents lived in northern IN... but then I discovered that they didn't care what time I called, so long as I CALLED ...and I stopped worrying about it!

    I actually like DST. I just feel more energized when it gets dark later in the day. But I agree we'd be better off to just change the time and keep it that way. It seems pointless to go back and forth - it's just too disruptive to our internal clocks and physiology.

    I just found the "history" of DST.

    Here's just a snippet:
    "Beginning in 2007, Daylight Saving Time is extended one month and begins for most of the United States at:
    2 a.m. on the Second Sunday in March
    and lasts until
    2 a.m. on the First Sunday of November.

    The new start and stop dates were set in the Energy Policy Act of 2005."

    I still think we should just set the damn clocks and leave them.
    DST was pretty much set up before people had wonky schedules.
    The only people I personally know effected by DST are farmers who milk on schedule.
    For the rest of us, it's a maor P.I.T.A.

    The whole thing should be tossed out the window with rotary phones and black and white TV sets. It's antiquated and pointless.

    Then again; it is yet one more distraction to keep us from noticing what the Evil Shadow Government and their Alien Space Bat Masters are actually up to.
    ...HEY! This isn't the Rogue's board! What the hell am I doing here!?! Stirring up trouble, that's what.
