    What a bad day. Everything I have deals with the time. Problem being is somethings change automatically some don't. I have pop door auto, electric fence auto, deer feeders auto. It will take me a few days to get it straight in the mean time I could possibly loose some chicks etc.I know some like the extra daylight that's fine but lord have mercy. Just set it which ever way & leave it be. OK I'm done. But if something happens before I get this set correctly I'll be back. Dang government they don't have a clue. Obaby has never lived on a farm. Goodnight to all.

    Hot Springs,
    DST needs to be repealed. Let's just keep the clocks on real time, and set our alarms for whatever time works for what we need to do.

    Quote:Yah it's completely unnecessary. Based on a system that has long passed and in response to energy consumption (like candles [​IMG] ) really? Let's give it up and be done with it.

    Daylight savings has to be the dumbest idea to date.
