          The 48 Contiguous United States except Arizona and Indiana honor the daylight savings program.

            Sometimes I wish we didn't, but then again, I like it when it suddenly gets darker earlier just before Halloween , and the sun stays up longer shortly after the equinox...yet for some reason..it will still be winter when it changes this year.
            Why is that? Anyone know? I thought it was suppose to be the 1st weekend of April!

              Au Contraire! Thanks to global warming spring arrives 3 weeks early - thus the need to advance the date we change the clocks.

              Yep, that's my story.

                  One of the reasons is energy savings and less pollution and green house gases. [They say]

                    Daylight Savings Time was extended to help save energy. An hour later allows people to use less artificle lights.

                    Also in warmer areas they stay outside longer and businesses like golf course benefit as people get more time after work to do outdoor recreational activities.

                    The amount if daylight in March is the equivalent from mid September to mid October. We have daylight savings time in the fall, why not in the spring?

                      Hey Bare in the Desert, that's one thing I miss when I left Arizona, and that is not having to mess with the clock twice a year.

                        Just remember to change the batteries in your smoke/carbon dioxcide detectors. And enjoy an extra hour of afternoon daylight.

                          Indiana now observes daylight savings time. 2006 was the first year.

                            I will be glad to see the longer sunlight hours. I have Seasonal Affective Disorder among other things and the extra daylight helps.

                              What was weird about it. Only 4 counties in Indiana observed it always, I happen to live in in one of those.. Last year they did change it to where almost the whole state observes it now.
