NOTICE TO READERS: Daylight Savings Time begins March 12
It’s time to SPRING FORWARD this weekend and lose an hour’s sleep! We officially shift to Eastern Daylight Time at 2 a.m. when clocks “spring forward” to 3 a.m. on Sunday, March 12. If they don’t do so automatically, you’d best set your clocks and watches forward one hour before you go to bed on Saturday, March 11, or you may be an hour late for whatever you have planned for Sunday morning. “Spring forward, fall back” is one of the sayings used to remember which way to set your watch. You set your clock forward one hour in the spring when daylight time starts (= lose one hour), and back one hour when it ends in the fall (= regain one hour).
