Yay! More time under the covers on Sunday morning.

Daylight saving time is coming to an end.

Translation: Weary Floridians snag an extra hour of sleep as you set clocks back (“fall back”) one hour before going to bed on Saturday.

But futzing with all your clocks is so annoying (well, not all, cell phones generally handle this quite well on their own). Think about the one on the stove, the one in the car, the giant grandfather clock. Sigh. It can be tough on the old fingers.

Two lucky states — Arizona and Hawaii — don’t fall back or spring forward at all. Meanwhile, most of the rest of the nation is stuck with this nonsense.

We found a few folks who felt as irritated as we were and used humor to defuse the situation.
