  • Paula Lee: "I spend the extra hour complaining about it getting dark too early."
  • David Thornton: "My yearly ritual is to leave my watch on DST until I got the chance to go fishing. Late in the day I would then set my watch back an hour so I got an extra hour to enjoy fishing that day."
  • Kalanu Raven Sun: "Sleep, most likely."
  • Robbie Barnes: "Instead of a 12 hour shift it will be a 13 hour shift............great."
  • Mike Moses: "I wish the powers that be would do away with this antiquated practice. it stinks to lose an hour of daylight. Makes me depressed."
