Daylight Saving Time Will Begin in March in 2007

Today marks the last year that Daylight Saving will begin the first Sunday of April.

Starting in 2007, Daylight Saving will begin in mid-March. We will actually be on Standard Time for four months out of the year once that change is implemented.

Indiana marked Daylight Saving today for the first time in over three decades.

Monday update: Thanks to Missy for pointing out that this is the first time in many years the entire state of Indiana uniformly marked Daylight Saving Time.

Missy also reminded me of the fun WEST WING episode where a few characters' schedules were foiled by the varied Indiana time zones.

I didn't know Indiana was going whole hog this year. I think it makes more sense for the entire state to be in the same time zone.

If I've untangled Indiana correctly, they'll all be on Daylight Savings for the first time in years, but I think they still have multiple time zones? Interesting situation! Best wishes, Laura

Laura:
Is there anyway to demand that this irritating practice be done on Friday evening/Saturday morning?

It would sure be better on a Friday night! I can't begin to list the mix-ups we've had at church because of people not realizing the time change. :)

Or you could go to the Stop Daylight Saving website, they want to abolish the practice!
