"I feel fine. The hour of sleep doesn't bother me," said Jamey Petterson. "I go to bed early anyway, so going to bed an hour later doesn't bother me too much. It bothers my wife. She goes to bed very late. Much later than I do."

"We're college students, so sleep isn't a priority for us. So it really didn't matter if we gained or lost sleep," said Bree Romo.

Not everyone had the easiest morning.

"I've actually had two already here at Roasters coffee this morning," said Ruby Moreno. "It's been really hard. I go to bed really late. So this whole time change really does effect me."

Unlike the rest of the states, Hawaii and Arizona did not turn their clocks forward.
