Get Ready To “Spring Forward” THIS WEEKEND!

Standard Time will soon give way to Daylight Savings Time. The change will occur at 2 a.m. on THS Sunday, March 12th. The change means the loss of an hour of sleep but the days will seem longer since sunset will occur an hour later. As an example, when you go to bed on Saturday night, March 11th, set you clocks ahead one hour. For instance, if you go to bed at 11 p.m. on March 11th, set your clocks ahead one hour to midnight. They will have the correct time when you awaken Sunday morning, March 12th.

Sunrise and sunset will each be an hour later on Sunday, March 12 than they did just the day before. It will be dark longer in the morning but the light will last longer in the evening.

By the way, Daylight Saving Time will end and we will return to Standard Time on Sunday, Nov. 5th, 2017. That’s when you will get your lost hour of sleep back from the spring time change.
