I think it is a fine idea. Just think of all the poor slobs with solar power for their house - they would get an extra hour of free sunlight every day!

I think we make it 2 hours then, Double Daylight Savings Time--even more betterer!

Forgive me for sleeping on the job. Does this mean we don't set back the clocks this weekend?

We're supposed to set them "Ahead" 1hr this weekend. Whether or not we set them "back" in November, remains to be seen.

I actually don't mind it, especially in the summer time when the days are longer, although they don't seem as "longer" here in FL as they did when I was living in the PRNJ. To be expected, given the differences in latitude.

Where I have issues with it is during the winter. Back when I was in HS, they "experimented" with DST by starting it in February... this to save energy, later in the day (less energy used in the morning than in the afternoon/evening - fewer lights, etc.). The problem being, in February, it would delay sunrise to between 8a - 8:30am (for that latitude). I was usually at school by 7:30a. Hated having to travel to school (and spend the first hour or so) in total darkness. I suppose it could be worse, though. I recall when i visited Seattle, it was dark by 4:10pm in Nov. (and not light until 9a the next day).

Oh good Christ....talk about dumb.

1st choice: do nothing
2nd choice: year-round STANDARD time (nationwide, preferably)
3rd choice: planet-killer comet hitting the Earth

Year round DST was observed during wartime and was viewed as a burden to be tossed aside ASAP, like rationing. But Americans today are so much dumber and open to government manipulation, so there is no comparison.

So, I don't have to rotate my tires anymore.

This is the problem with having DST in the winter. Matter of fact, every fall I can't wait for the clock to go back the hour to normal time. Hate driving to work in the dark. I hope the Feds shut this down. GARY

Legislature voted it in yesterday, goes to Govs desk for signature.

Aside from being a PITA the 2 time changes a year kill about 200 people and maims a lot others in assorted related accidents. Time for this archaic remnant of the pre fluorescent lighting days to go. I hope the rest of the USA follows Florida

I would love for Florida to make this so.
DST or not doesn't really matter to me, just effing pick ONE and leave it there!!!
Moving the time back & forth twice a year is stupidity. :ham'r

Nope, as long as you drive a vehicle made after 1980 or so. Vehicles made in the 70's still had the loose suspension tolerances that made each tire wear differently. If you get uneven wear on a tire on a modern vehicle, you should get the suspension repaired and replace the unevenly worn tire so it doesn't damage the repaired suspension from vibration.

Vehicle manufacturers want you to rotate your tires during the warranty period, to help conceal any suspension defects until after the warranty runs out.

Joe

Drive wheels will still wear faster than the non-drive wheels on 2-wheel drive cars.

Yep, that’s the main reason I rotate rear-to-front and only buy 2 new tires at a time. A set of 4 Michelins for my truck is over $1,000!
