#SOLSC20: Day 8

One Hour 

One hour less sleep.

One hour sooner that I can sleep tonight.

A darker morning.

More daylight at the end of the day.

Sixty minutes lost.

Sixty minutes that will be regained in the fall.

More energy burnt in the dark mornings.

Energy saved in the evenings.

Dark morning walks.

More time to be outside in daylight in the evenings.

You can learn more about the history of Daylight Savings Time here.

Is Daylight Savings Time still necessary? 

Why or why not? 

Are you ready for a week filled with: time change, full moon, Friday the 13th AND the Ides of March?

Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this daily forum in March. Check out the writers and readers here.

  1. I love the light at the end of the day — for me it is worth it! I think I am going to need to make up the hour before next fall! Love the seesaw structure – works well with opinion!

    1. Clare,
      The first week is always the worst. It was my excuse to huddle over my chrome book like a campfire this morning . . . watching for the first hint of daylight outside the windows! 🙂 And thanks – structure has been my focus these first days of #SOLSC20.

  2. Love the dueling points of view. I did not like getting up in the dark and driving to work before daylight. I suppose there’s value in those hours at the end of the day, but I don’t play golf, so it’s lost on me

    1. Diane, no golf here eirher

  3. Definitely some pros and cons, but for me I LOVE having light longer in the evening. In northern latitudes it often gets dark in the winter just after 4pm. It’s brutal.

    1. Brutal, the week of the change for sure!

  4. Although I miss that hour of sleep I do enjoy not eating dinner in the dark.

    1. Agreed. When it is dark at 4:30, it feels like bedtime is 8. LOL

  5. Let’s end daylight savings time. I dislike the fall back and the way the days just disappear! WHY do we do it????

    1. Anita,
      I think DST has served its purpose. I commend the states that refuse to change.
