Spring ahead

April 3rd, 2003 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Daylight saving time is not a bad idea. I enjoy the “fall back” part of it very much. It’s the “spring ahead” bit that’s somewhat painful.

You see, I don’t take kindly to losing an hour of sleep.

I understand we can’t just set clocks back in the fall and not set them ahead in spring, though I’ve tried to figure out a way, believe me. I do think I’ve come up with a reasonable compromise.

We don’t have to change anything about setting clocks back at 2AM on the first Sunday in October. That’s perfect. But there really is no reason we have to set the clocks ahead at 2AM on a Sunday in April. All that matters is we set the clocks ahead an hour, and I think I speak for a lot of people when I say setting it ahead while we are sleeping is a form of theft.

So let’s say we set the clocks ahead on the first Monday in April, at 4PM. Who’s going to mind losing an hour of work?

Plus I hate having to set my alarm for 2AM to change the clocks. That’s so inconvenient.
