It’s nearly time to ‘spring forward.’ Just a friendly reminder that this weekend is daylight savings time so do not forget to turn your clocks ahead!
At 2 a.m. on the morning of Sunday, March 11, we’ll be springing forward—and losing an hour of the day, for daylight saving time. The good news: sunset will be an hour later. The bad news is we will be loosing an hour of sleep, for me however, I would rather have the sunlight for a little longer everyday because I will have more time for activities outside before dark.
You may have noticed the annual tradition of daylight saving time has crept forward a bit. We used to spring forward on the first Sunday in April and fall back on last Sunday in October. But a couple years ago, Congress changed the date—adding more daylight saving time to the calendar. This year, it will run from March 11 until Nov. 4.
