An extra hour of sleep, for the next 4 months

Everywhere in the lower 48 states this Saturday night, sleepers will get an extra hour of sleep due to Daylight Savings Time, except for Arizona. (Hawaii doesn't either, but I am trying not to mention the Aloha State). It's fine that AZ doesn't change, we don't want to confuse the cacti here. In most of the decades I lived in Indiana, they never changed either, not wanting to confuse their cows or corn. All of India (including Bangalore) does not change their clocks either.

The impact is has on me personally, is that I get to sleep an extra hour each morning until 15 March 2010. Georgia and South Carolina change their clocks this Saturday, and since head quarters moves their meetings, everyone has to revolve around them. Poor bastards in Bangalore have to stay an hour later (sometimes to 10 or 11 pm), but they too get to sleep later and avoid morning rush-hour.

Good thing DVRs don't care, and record TDS and Colbert regardless of when they are on!
