    Daylight savings time

    The announcer said on the radio "Clocks go back one hour at 2am tomorrow morning as Daylight Saving Time ends". Why do I have to get up at 2am to set my clocks back?

    Hi,

    I suspect that you may be jesting - are you ?

    Here comes the answer then - all you need remember is to set your clocks back an hour just before you go to bed -

    If you don't do it at 2:00 then they will be wrong! Can you imagine the horror of waking up at 3am and realising that all your clocks are wrong? You would never be able to get back to sleep.

    If you don't do it at 2am you have to wait 6 months.

    I also stay in a part of the world where time is more stable and we don't need to compensate for it by changing the clocks.

    Re: Daylight savings time

    What I particularly like about 'this' 6 months is everyone seems to put meeting times in UTC - until March I can just read the time and not have to do any converting

    Not that adding 1 is all that onerous ...

    Oh the horror!
    I hate it,I've always hated it. There is mumbling in the states of pitching the whole mess in the dust bin. I could go with this plan.
