On March 14th most of the country turned their clocks an hour ahead to begin daylight savings. With daylight savings springing us into an extra hour of daylight in the afternoon, locals  appreciate the event.

“I love daylight savings; it makes everything so much better because I have more time in the afternoons to do things that I enjoy like make tiktoks, and take pictures of my truck,” said senior JJ Hunsaker.

More daylight this time of year means less snow, allowing people to feature out into spring. “I like daylight savings because it allows me to do more horn hunting. After school I will be able to go straight onto the mountain and pick up that brown gold everybody has been waiting so eagerly to find,” said junior Kysen Hebdon.

Although some appreciate the extra daylight the saving time brings, many do not like the feeling of waking up an hour earlier in the dark. Senior, Stoker Neuenschwander is one of these people. “I’m not a huge fan of waking up while it’s still dark. It throws my whole mood off until I’m used to the time change.”

Around the country some states have begun to question the twice a year time change. Falling back in November allows us and extra hour of daylight in the mornings, so some states wonder why we have to change between the times so often. According to the New York Times, some states are considering observing only  daylight savings in spring as the only annual change.

Whether you like spring daylight savings time or not, make the most of the daylight because before long the days will start get shorter again.
