Do you think we should continue to change the clocks twice a year ? (Daylight savings time)

 

Marcus Womock, Ocean - I think they should just leave it alone. It makes people late for work. It’s very confusing and it’s a pain to turn the clocks back and forth. It messes with our sleep schedule, too.

Fred Battlett, Asbury Park - By God no! I absolutely don’t like the changing of the clocks back and forth. Useless. In the old days it made sense, but now we don’t need it.  Not in Asbury Park.

Matthew Beegle, Neptune - That’s a tough question. I guess we may as well keep it, why not? I hate it when I wake up in the dark, but I like the extra sunlight after work  It’s 6 in one hand, a half dozen in the other.

Lou & Bobbie Celmer, Oakhurst - We say leave them alone. Stick to standard time. It’s way too dark when we go to work. Just keep it simple, stupid. Keep it standard.

Harriet Cook, Ocean - Scientifically, I can’t tell you why we do it, but, I think people do feel better having that extra hour of light at the end of the day. So, I say, leave it the way it is now.

Carol Ferrante, Ocean - Honestly, I think we should just leave it alone. Truthfully, I don’t like the change. That’s what it all boils down to for me.

Kathryn Juric, w/Sophia, Long Branch - I think we should not change the clocks, just keep it on standard time. We need to simplify life. Sophia feels the change because she has to get up at a different time.

Lisa Kelly, Ocean - Leave it alone. For one thing it’s pain changing the clock in my car. That’s my main reason.

Jonathan & Stacy Tea, Shark River Hills - Stacy: I have mixed feelings. There is something about coming out if winter. Setting the clock ahead is a signal that spring is coming. On the other hand, I don’t know why we’re messing with the universe. There’s no reason.  Jonathan: I don’t see the point. It doesn't save anything. In the winter, the days are shorter. Moving the clock doesn’t change the fact that the days are short.

Arnold Teixeria, Starving Artist - I really think it’s a literal waste of time. For all the manual adjustments and schedule changes - it doesn't make sense anymore. It also effects my mood. The readjustment. For whatever reason they did it long ago, it doesn't apply anymore.

Amie Williams, Asbury Park - I think they should leave them just the way they are supposed to be. Don’t change them back and forth. The farmer’s don’t need it anymore. Everything is  electric, even the cows are milked by electricity.

What do you think you’ll remember most about this winter?

 

Albert Tenpenny w/Brandon, NYC - Long, a very long winter. In the city, alternate side of the street parking was suspended. That’s nice. And it slows down the city, too. Nice and quite. Brandon enjoyed snow days and went to the Silverball museum.

Richard Hunt, Belmar - I live on the water in Belmar and no matter how high I turned the heat up, I had a cold house.  I’m paying the gas bills now. Those are memorable. I gave out hand warmers to the mailman and gas station attendant.

Ted Landers, Bradley Beach - I never remember a winter with such relentless extreme cold temperatures. I thank God for the sun we had. I dress for the weather and walk when I can. Lots of layers, ski masks, hats, etc.

Melissa Miller, Ocean - What I’ll remember most is that my daughter is 2 1/2 and this was the first time she played in the snow. It made up for all the snow and the cold. She had so much fun. She loved it. She keeps asking me if it’s snowing.

Dan Nichols, Asbury Park - The great beach. Going down and seeing the ice at water’s edge. The snow on the beach meeting the ice in the water - it was just wonderful.

Rob Pacicca, Asbury Park - I remember building more fires in the fireplace with my friends and family more then any other year. This was a winter that brought us closer. We had no choice.

Susan Poland, Toms River & Michelle Fiorelli, Phila. -The frigging freezing cold. We hate winter. Ice and cold will be utmost on our list for this winter.  We were at the Stone Pony with South Side Johnny. It certainly wasn’t cold there.

Ginny Richart, Neptune - That I was still able to shovel snow, that was memorable. I came from Whiting in a snowstorm. I was on the Parkway. The only way I found my way was to follow a truck’s tracks.

Joe Rudy, Ocean Grove - I thought we were going to get away with no snow but we got plenty in the end. And the zero temperature, I had to have my brand new car jumped started. Hopefully we’ll have a early spring.

Robert Stears, Long Island - We had 29 inches of snow in one storm. I’m 60 and I’ve never seen anything like that. Just the endless cold. I thought last year was bad, but this year was the worst. We haven’t seen the ground since early January.
