Daylight Saving Time

14 posts in this topic

Hi, Colts fans! :) Upconing 2012 Winter DST version taking effect this Sunday Morning, November 4, at 2:00AM We set our clocks back one hour. Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands though, do not observe Daylight saving time.

Winter 2012 DST is utilize early d in the next four months of the calendar year, until we spring forward for Daylight Savings Time for next summer by Sunday Morning on March 10, 2013. ;)

I wondered how that exactly works. I was wondering if it starts precisely at 12 am, do you go back to November 2nd at 11pm or does time sit still for 1 hour at 12 am untill day light savings time catches up.

Other than the 1st day of daylight savings, I absolutely hate it. Dark at 5pm is garbage. Here comes subtle depression and melancholy, oh boy.

Come 1:58 am tonight( I'll be up anyway), I'm going to be watching the cable box and cellphone. I never seen a clock go from 1:59 to 1:00.

well getting dark at 5pm isn't the problem since we are back to standard time. it's the fact that it happens all of a sudden instead of gradually

Time changed. Set my alarm for 4:00 am to make sure there were no problems with getting up for work in the morning. It went off way too early for a Sunday!

    • I'm actually happy about it. I normally can't watch games live because I have to be at work at 1pm on Sundays. I will be able to watch almost all of it
    • A great post Restored! Thank you for your insightful perspective. 
    • Intro: What is it like to play in London? The Colts have a couple of players who have experienced playing overseas. View the full article
    • 14.30 for me too, I hope I don't sleep in, lol.   It's probably better it's on early in the morning for ye guys though. The 4.25pm kickoffs like against the Broncos and Chargers last 2 weeks are at 9.25pm across the ocean here, which means were up until about 1am on a work night. Say like last year against the Patriots in the night time kickoff, I stayed up from 1.30am to about 4.30-5.00 (ish), and then we saw that fake punt fail, I was not in a good mood Monday morning.     Honestly though, I've been a Colts fan for about 12 years. This is the first time I am getting an opportunity to see my team, so obviously hugely, hugely excited about Sunday!   Just want to wish everybody flying over a safe and happy trip. (Granted the latter may depend on the result, lol)
    • Thank you for your post OPC, particularly what I highlighted in red. You're right though. Luck's early success in the league getting 1 step further every yr. minus DeFlate Gate has created an aura of playoff expectations that may not be easily achieved every season. Also, I like what you said about the fact that we all have habits good or bad that we will never change. The same is true of QBs. Some QBs are risk takers & with risks come both touchdowns & turnovers.    I always cut Chewy a ton of slack because I know our running game isn't great & he always owns his picks saying "my fault". That's why I love the guy because he always takes responsibility on bad decision making himself even if the turnover isn't really his fault.    I agree with you. Luck is just starting his NFL career & we as fans have to let the game come to him on his own timetable not what we or the media think his awareness level in yr 5. Like you say, Andrew has more football ahead of him than behind him. Well said.

    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
