Adjusting to Time Change

It'll take some getting used to, but most of us have successfully converted back to Eastern Standard Time.

Several of the people we spoke with say they remembered to put all the clocks in their home back an hour but forgot about the one in their cars. However, the time change can come as a shock to our systems, throwing off our regular schedules that we've gotten used to over the past eight months.

"I don't like it because I'll just get home, get the dogs fed, and it'll be dark, " says Adamsville resident Stacy Green.

"I grow accustomed to it and can function again then, " says Chandlersville resident Rhonda Revennaugh.

But some people are finding some positive aspects to this time change.

"I like the extra hour of sleep, " says young Elizabeth Stillion.

"I like as much daylight as possible, especially in the morning because I'm a morning person, " says Revennaugh.

While the sun now sets before 5:30 in the evenings, it will get lighter in the mornings. The sunrise will now occur just after 7:30 a.m. We will revert back to Eastern Daylight Time on the second Sunday in March.
