NH Free Time
« on: April 02, 2006, 08:49 AM NHFT »

What do you guys think of the idea of NH not going along with Eastern Time?
I was thinking it would separate us from the silly US daylight savings time thing.

I dunno, all those farm children need to be able to get their chores done before their school bus arrives.  ;)

Do you think that would work out better?
We could call it NH time.
I like the idea of not switching and being different from other places. Caleb said the USA today headline for Indiana caving was "Uniformity at Last" or something. It would be fun for us to be the opposite. :)

Even if it doesn't pass, I will be observing the free state time zone.

I grew up in Indiana and I couldn't believe it when they switched.  I talked to a friend there yesterday and he and I had serious trouble talking about what time it was, as he kept referring to EST as "Quote Real time". So I'm pretty sure that most of the Proles are against it. 

Anyway I would definitely like our own time zone, but you need the annual average of sunup and then make that say 7am even if it is 730am (ALL of India, for example, is +5.5 from GMT http://worldatlas.com/aatlas/infopage/timezonz.htm)

I'm not particularly excited about the idea of dawn at 3:30am in the summertime.

What time does Dawn excite you? And does Bill know? Or Caryn?

You know, "My man Mitch" actually campaigned on switching to daylight savings time.  What's funny is that no one in Indiana wanted to switch, that I know of, and yet somehow all the polls were saying that people were demanding it.

Mitch said that people think of Hoosiers as "hicks" because we don't switch our clocks.  But its a stupid idea anyway, and I really don't think Hoosiers are thought of as "hicks" because they didn't switch their clocks.
