Time to Spring Ahead: Daylight Saving Time
Don’t forget, we spring ahead this Sunday, March 13 at 2A.M. and it doesn’t end until Sunday, November 6. Yes, set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed so you won’t be late for church in the morning.
Not all states do the clock change. Hawaii, most of Arizona, parts of Indiana, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands opt out.
Supposedly, the reason we do this, these days is to save energy — since there’s less of a need to switch on the lights if natural light will do. Studies have shown the electricity conserved on the new schedule is actually pretty nominal. But look on the bright side. Those longer light-filled days are sure nice.
