is just around the corner when we'll enjoy longer, sunny
and warm days. A true sign, is Daylight Saving Time when we set our clocks an
our ahead, giving us that extra hour of sunlight.
When is daylight saving time this
year? Daylight savings, as it's colloquially called, returns this Sunday, March
9th at 2:00 am to Central New York and most of the United States.
Remember to set your clocks ahead
("spring forward") by one hour to 3 a.m. if you stay up for the
change, or update them before going to bed Saturday night.
The switch will provide an extra
hour of daylight in the evening, so the sun won't set Sunday until 7:04 p.m.
But it also will mean that workers and school children who were getting used to
getting up to daylight the past few weeks will again arise in the dark. Sunrise
will come Sunday at 7:27 a.m.
But why do we use Daylight Saving
Time, anyway? An educational video explains the history
of DST, first proposed by George Hudson in 1885 to give people more sunlight in
the summer. The narrator explains how some technology (TVs, smartphones, etc.)
has made changing our clocks somewhat an outdated practice that two U.S. states
(Arizona and Hawaii) don't even follow due to excessive year-round sunlight.
Also, don't forget to check your
batteries. Experts advise using the spring and fall time changes as a way to
remember to replace the batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms.
