Old Indian's Wise Words Regarding Daylight Savings Time in Arizona

In Ohio, Daylight Savings Time will cause us to spring ahead, and lose an hour of sleep. My friend Anna Kruchten of the Phoenix Property Shoppe is one of the lucky people who won't lose any sleep this weekend...and she authored this clever post. Thanks Anna!

Enjoy!

Old Indian's Wise Words Regarding Daylight Savings Time in Arizona

 

 

When told the reason for Daylight Saving Time, the Old Indian said,
"Only the government would believe that you can cut a foot off the top
of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and get a longer blanket."

  

Do Arizona's change their clocks back and forward?

 

Do People in Arizona Change Their Clocks this weekend?

 

No and Yes

 

Here's the deal  - all of Arizona does not follow the daylight savings changes in the fall and spring.  The only place in Arizona that does change their clocks is the North East section of Arizona on the Navajo Indian Reservation.   Perhaps they started the practice as there was not a lot of electricity back in the 40's when the whole changing clocks back and forward got started?  Or perhaps they were made to do so by the government - why makes no sense to me so that's probably not likely.  I really don't know the real reason but I'm sure it's out there somewhere. Do you know? 

 

Why are Daylight Savings Changes confusing to Arizonan's?

 

I know this one from personal experience!  Because we don't change it gets confusing when we have to remember how many hours we are from east coast time, central time, mountain time and pacific time...not to mention everywhere else on the planet.  I remind myself often that in the winter we're on 'mountain time' and in the summer we're on Pacific time - we just don't mess around with changing clocks back and forth.  The whole changing clock thing seems kind of silly to me, always has even when I lived I cold and dark Minnesota!

 

 

Why not just stop the whole changing time thing everywhere and then there would be no confusion!!!
