Daylight savings time

Too early!

And why haven't I seen *anything* about this until maybe this thursday? Normally, I hear about it for a few weeks.

DST doesn't actually save energy anymore - not anyplace where air-conditioning is common. But that objection probably doesn't apply to DST in March.

Too early? Isn't "2:00 am on the second Sunday in March" in, like, 9 hours and fifteen minutes?

They should call it "daylight shift time" or "daylight realignment time" or something. We get the same amount of daylight. *grumbles, literally*

Thanks for mentioning it. I totally missed it.

I would have spent several very confused minutes trying to figure out why my computer's clock decided to shift by an hour from the house clocks...

For the extremely pedantic among us, it is correctly referred to as “Daylight saving time” (“saving” should be in the present tense). Actually correcting anyone who says “Daylight savings” falls on the annoyance scale somewhere around correcting the pluralization of “Attorney Generals” to “Attorneys General”, and is best avoided.
