  • 10 daylight saving time facts and why farmers aren't to blame

Yes, you lose an hour of sleep.

Here in B.C., the Union of B.C. Municipalities endorsed a resolution from Grand Forks in September asking the province to consider abolishing Daylight Saving Time. But you get over it quickly! If you can't give up your morning coffee, then try to at least avoid caffeine after noon for a couple days leading up to the time shift.

"For others, the time change may be unsafe, at least for a while". "There are a lot of pros to daylight saving time, but I'm not hearing much discussion in Florida about the cons".

However, Sunday, at 2 a.m., clocks will move forward as they have for years with the beginning of Daylight Savings Time. In 1966, the Uniform Time Act finally standardized daylight saving time in the U.S. Arizona, Hawaii, American Samoa, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands do not observe DST.

Sen. Harvey Peeler, R-Cherokee, said he is not partial to daylight time or standard time. He pointed out that the Navajo Nation switches to daylight saving time every spring. As we move toward that possibility, we may find it easier to save lives and money rather than chase the daylight. It helps us manage our energy bills because it cools down earlier. "We're out of sync with the other mountain states for four months, but people don't really think about it".

These discussions are driving more people to wonder, "It's only an hour, what's the big deal?" The days are about to seem even longer at sunset, however. The sunrise in Tampa on December 22, 2017 occurred at 7:17 a.m.

The time changing ritual has been controversial for generations, with studies suggesting the disruption in schedules increases traffic accidents and heart attacks. The basic idea is to make the best use of daylight hours by shifting the clock forward in the SPRING and backward in the FALL.

10 daylight saving time facts and why farmers aren't to blame

Complaints about daylight-saving time include safety fears in the dark mornings, especially for school children waiting for a bus in some areas. Some cities like NY would observe it while rural areas around them did not. With such a switch, states on the east coast could be in three different time zones determined by latitude, instead of longitude, the way time zones are normally determined. "And it was awkward for people living near the state borders". Daylight saving time now accounts for about 65% of the year. Farmers tend to work when it's light; they just adjust their schedules accordingly. And since your immune system may see a slight dip at the same time, you're more likely to catch whatever flu or cold might be going around your office the week after setting your clocks ahead. William Willett first proposed changing clocks in England in 1908, but Germany, seeking to save on energy costs during World War I, was the first country to enact the practice in 1915, followed by the US and other nations in 1918. It was enforced during the First World War, in a bid to save money during wartime.

Daylight Saving Time (DST) is common among almost all the states in the country, although not all states use it. The continental United States could, during some times during the year, contain six different time zones.

For instance, one reason Congress used in enacting daylight saving time is that it saves energy.

The bill that is headed to Gov. Rick Scott, which he can sign, allow to become law without his signature, or veto, is called the Sunshine State Protection Act. The state now follows the national timetable.

As a result of "springing forward", additional daylight is realized during the spring and summer months, although the time change has been a point of discussion and controversy. This created quite a quandary.
