Like Groundhog Day
It's really funny if you do the full witch costume. Their faces when you answer the door. LOL
It is dark enough.
I have pet Pheasants and i love them. Seriously. They're great.
But this has also happened to me once. Only once.
It was horribly crunchy. Seeing as, luck would have it, I was driving down a country road with my recently run over pet cat in the boot of the car, and on my way to a suitable spot to bury said cat (who i loved) to say this was a rather bad day would be an understatement. I cried. A lot.
Don't like it either; it gets dark so early and, as the mornings become gradually darker also, I feel that I hardly see daylight during the week!
It must be like that all the time if you're a Mole
The thing is that I'm not a mole and I could literally weep with frustration at the thought it's going to be dark by 5pm tomorrow. And when I say literally I mean literally.
I have a radio controlled clock with hands which sets itself, and I have tried to stay up to see it happen. But never succeeded! I always give up and go to bed or nod off and find it has happened. All I can say is it doesn't do it at midnight or 1:00 am, so when does it do it !?
How to remember which way the clocks go -- Spring forward, Fall back!
It's like waiting for Father Christmas. It never happens while you're watching.
You need to get yourself a dog like mine, zizzy.
It will alert you to each occasion a cat or a rat or a brat farts on this side of the ocean. I can't believe you find it possible you'd be able to remain asleep if Father Christmas tried to get down your chimney with this dog in your house.
You can borrow him if you like.
2 am apparently. No idea why.
British summer time and the return to Greenwich Mean Time (UTC) begin at 1 a.m., this is when the times signalled by the MSF radio service and the Truetime telephone time service are altered. In fact, because the information is sent in advance, the MSF signal has already changed during the previous minute, and the Truetime signal changes during the previous second.
However, only mains-powered radio-controlled clocks are likely to be continuously checking the MSF signal. Battery-powered radio-controlled clocks typically check the time only every hour, or every two hours, and radio-controlled watches only perhaps three times a day. This is to conserve the battery, as the reception unit takes more power than the clock/watch mechanism. So some radio-controlled clocks or watches may not 'realise' that the time has changed until several hours later.
We all take notice of this oppression in having to change our clocks, but is it actually legal to enforce us to change our working hours in this way? Has it ever been tested in a court of law?
It's officially supposed to happen at 2 a.m.
Thanks for the offer but I'll pass because I'm not a doggy person..
You's never get murdered on you sleep with him him around,
You's never get any sleep mind.
Can’t wait for my car clock to be correct again tomorrow!
Not as far as I know or can tell.
Over the decades many attempts have been made by various bodies to change the system using Parliament to change the relevant law but none as yet has succeeded.
Getting a court to even consider ruling on this would be an interesting but ( I think) difficult exercise and I cannot think on waht grounds the law could actually be challenged.
If you have deep pockets I am sure that an attempt could be made though...
As far as I recall, most of Europe now change their time systems on the same day as an EU directive was issued in order to standardise this
Am I the only one who feels as if the mornings are plunged deeper into darkness rather than actually being lighter?! The psychological turmoil!
