No a big deal to me I just think it is a waste.

Some states don't even do it and then some do. I say just leave time alone

I like it for summer daylight. Its the changing of the clocks I don't do well with.

for those who hate it, you can always move to Arizona or Indiana, neither state changes time.

x2. In the winter when we are on daylight I don't see it until my days off. We work 6a-6p or 6p-6a. It will be nice to actually come home in the daylight.

All of North America does DST, I believe. As well as many countries in other parts of the world. The countries that do not include: Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Afghanistan, China, India, Iraq, Japan, Kazakhstan, North Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Iceland, Georgia. Just to name the highlights. Info courtesy of Wikipedia.
