Daylight Savings Time This Weekend
Earlier this week, we gave you Daylight Savings Time Reminder#1. Today, we give you reminder number#2. And to keep it simple, remember to spring ahead, and set the clocks ahead one hour when you go to bed tonight. The actual time change occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday morning, but who wants to stay up ’til two in the morning to change clocks?
According to our sister station, WIBX:
“The plan to make the most of available sunlight starts on March 11, 2012 at 2:00am and ends November 4, 2012.
Benjamin Franklin first thought up the idea in 1784 but it was George Vernon Hudson who proposed it for the nation in 1895, though it was not until World War One that it was first implemented.
Daylight Saving Time is also a good time to replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.”
And then, the days will stay lighter, longer, and the mornings will be darker a bit later. But, Daylight Savings Time is a great way to think spring, as we’ll have more time to spend outside in the early evenings, taking walks, doing gardening or other outside activities like painting the garage. I think I’ll settle for taking those walks.
