daylight_saving_spring_forwardThis weekend we will once again spring forward one hour for the start of daylight saving time. Daylight savings time officially begins at 2:00 A.M. this Sunday, March 14th.

The clock change will shift an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening pushing sunset from 6:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. giving the impression of longer days for the next 8 months.

While changing clocks forward it serves as a good time to remind people to check their smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and emergency alert radios.
