Yes - AZ has got it right!

Change by half hour, and leave it alone

4:30 today too dark to read, I though five more minutes i will need a flashlight.
The sun was over the mountains but not on the horizon though. December 22 it will be past dark at 4:00 central here.
More I think about it, establishing time in our country with High noon at 12:00 makes the most sense. Or at least makes as more sense than shifting time an hour in March and November.No worries about Train travelers. Truck Drivers don't reference the clock either it seems. About 3:00 pm many's day begins as the trucks are filled as the warehouse or factory day ends.
Why not: Today's electronics and nuclear clock or gps satellites adjust the clocks by signals.
My Native American Ancestors got up when the sun came up, or animals started moving if they were hunting. As the deer here do, that are not hunted it is generally sunup.
Why wreck our bodies and minds living by a Wall street mechanical clock not nature's clock.
If they set high noon as 12:00clock time in Nashville or close,as the state is about 450 miles extreme upper east Tn to southwest t the Arkansas border, that would be roughly 225 miles to the border in each direction. As time changes about 1 minute every 13 miles. High noon would only be off actual sun time about 17 minutes.
i think Tennesseans would agree to that.

Why would I reset them now ?? They are just starting to read the correct time. Next spring they will all be off by a hour again. 😛

Actually, I'm lying... They read the correct time all summer and they are a hour off all winter.

On the farm, these days, we don't have a lot to do in the winter so I don't care what time it is. It used to be a lot different in the old days but, we are getting old so in the winter I stay home a lot and hibernate like a bear. Some snow storms I don't even bother to clean out the driveway. Would be nice if I could go south but, we still have some livestock to take care of and it is to expensive to go. Not sure where I would go anyway. If I believe everything I see on the internet the south is all crime, alligators, hurricanes, and red necks.

I feel sorry for the caretakers at the Stonehenge monument in England. Having to move all those giant stones one position.

Also take pity on the pharmacy workers, that have to reset all the millions of tiny time release pills...

I had all the in-house clocks set back last night before I went to bed, except for my bedside clock; it is supposed to be automatic. It didn't work. So, I have to turn the DST switch to OFF, then set the time back!
Then, this morning, I checked my watch against the NIST time online, and set it for the best accuracy. I even reset the digital clock used for UTC (GMT for us oldsters). It had wandered about 5 minutes over the last year! Wonderful modern electronics...

Wise state, Arizona. In Florida, our senators are trying to introduce federal legislation allowing Florida to be on Savings Time year round. Which would essentially put Florida on Atlantic Standard Time. To what end or benefit, I have no idea. If anything, ditch DST nationwide.....forever.
