Horrible Things You Didn't Know About Daylight Savings Time

Spring forward, we're losing an hour of sleep this weekend when daylight saving time begins. Many countries around the world do not Spring forward or Fall back.

Under the Uniform Time Act of 1966, states may chose whether to use Daylight Saving Time. Otherwise, abandoning daylight-saving time would effectively put SC in a different time zone between March and November. "On mornings where there are icy roads and fog, it makes quite a difference", he said.

Englishman William Willett led the first campaign to move clocks forward 80 minutes for "summer time".

Experts say if you get at least seven hours of sleep a night, it should only be a minor inconvenience.

"The current system has existed for 100 years and is working fine in 70 countries", said David Prerau, author of Seize the Daylight: The Curious and Contentious Story of Daylight Saving Time.

But more daylight after work meant more time to shop, play golf and go to baseball games.

You'll get that hour of sleep back when Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 4th.

To help ease into the evening, Smitt recommends making sure the lights are warm and dimming the lights a bit as darkness falls.

"I think it's a question of whether the federal government will approve having essentially a 5th continental time zone", Downing said.

Dolphins' Jarvis Landry signs franchise tender for $15.9 million
In his first 4 seasons, Landry has averaged 100.3 catches, 1,010 yards and 5.5 touchdowns while appearing in all 64 games. Jarvis Landry's days with the Miami Dolphins are reportedly over. "Y'all better understand s- about to get SERIOUS".

A mom of five young children, Pamela Vetter, of Wilton, says she doesn't like the time-honored tradition.

Daylight Saving Time in the United States takes effect in the early morning hours of Sunday, March 11.

According to one study, the most effective way to reset your natural sleep schedule is to go camping.

Daylight-saving time returns this Sunday. (And, increasingly, the rolling equipment that farmers use is set up these days to run day and night.) As for farm animals, to paraphrase a recent report on "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver:" They don't care about the time.

If approved by the Legislature and signed into law, Chu's AB 807 would place a measure on a future statewide ballot to repeal the state's Daylight Saving Time Act and allow lawmakers to pass a new law enacting Daylight Saving Time year round.

State Rep. Rick Tillis (R-Lewisburg) recently watched as the House State Government Subcommittee effectively killed his bill on January 18 that would place the entire state under a permanent Eastern Standard Time.

The bill attracted little testimony during a hearing in January 207 and failed in the Senate with 33 legislators opposed to it and 11 who supported it.

A CBS News poll a few years back (in February 2015) found that 23% of adults would prefer to have Daylight Saving Time year round, 23% would prefer Standard Time the full year, and 48% prefer to switch back and forth between the two.
