What are you going to do with your "extra" hour?

DST end tonight at 2am, or I guess that's officially 2am SUNDAY.

I've set my clocks back already. I'll try to stay up a little later tonight, if I can.

All this time thing got me was working later then I wanted to. Everyone is worried the clocks aren't going to go back like they are suppose to. Who cares...its an hour. LOL But I will take that.

I'm in the part of Indiana that doesn't change the time. Hope you guys enjoy your extra hour that magically appears from nowhere. But here's a question for those that change time so they can spend their hour researching it.
When DST was first established, were the clocks moved forward first, or backwards, and do we have the "correct" time in the fall or spring?

No kidding. We didn't change clocks in Phoenix either, when I came here I had to readjust to it. I grew up changing them back and forth in MI, and I enjoyed getting away from it.

It's an outdated system that's time has come! (No pun intended)

Let me know, if I'm not busy maybe I'll come on by.

Tattoo parties, with a drunken tattoo artist is always a wise decision of choice on who to do your tat!

Most likely you were right off 21 or Corunna Rd...
