Spring Forward March 12, 2017!
Before you head to bed on Saturday night March 11, remember to set your clocks forward an hour as we enter Daylight Saving Time at 2am Sunday, March 12, 2017.
Though most of our smart phones and some digital clocks automatically re-set, many microwaves and regular battery-powered clocks do not.
Technically we “lose” an hour of sleep on Sunday, but I am really looking forward to an hour more of daylight at the end of each day. Starting Sunday, the 12th, the sun will be setting around 7:11pm!
If you have an older home, a good idea to do when you change your clocks is to change your batteries in your smoke detectors, if they are not hardwired. Firefighters recommend changing your smoke detector batteries twice a year, and the time change is the perfect time to do so.
Enjoy the daylight later in the day!
