USAians and Canadians, time change tonight

mood: awake

This is the "Fall back" switch from Daylight Savings Time, so set your clocks to 11 pm at midnight or whenever: you can always check timeanddate.com, just to be sure. I'm going to try and think of it as an extra hour to sleep in or get things done.

Thanks for the reminder! My mobile and laptop are clever enough to change on their own, but I have to remember to change my alarm clock and all the other tickers in my house. Cheers. :)

*g* No worries! Only some of us, anyway...the crazy farmers in Saskatchewan don't follow DST, along with a few random cities from coast to coast that buck the trend (which reminds me of The West Wing episode "20 Hours in America,").

Daylight Savings Time was most confusing when I lived in the UK, because they observe it too, but they switch a week or two earlier or later than North America, and it was hard enough to keep up with my family with an 8-hour time difference, never mind 9 hours (and the fact that I didn't know about the DST difference, leading me to wake my mom at 5 a.m. one day instead of our usual 6 a.m. chat, whoops!).

In short, time zones utterly befuddle me, and I am grateful that you are here to poke me. <3

I love DST because I like having more light in the evening. But so it goes. http://timeanddate.com is so convenient!

Because the time wanted to be tricksy, I spent the extra hour reading Hallowe'en pr0n, what a treat!

But except Arizonans! For some strange reason, we don't switch! This confuses my family and me to no end. :)

I think it's the whole state that doesn't switch, actually. Half the year, we're on Pacific time, and half the year, we're on Mountain. Very puzzling.
