Before you head to bed on Saturday night, make sure to set you clocks forward an hour as we enter Daylight Saving Time at 2am Sunday, March 11, 2012!

I realize that nowadays, most of our phones and many digital clocks automatically reset, but most microwaves, stove, and regular clocks do not!

We “lose” an hour of sleep, but I am excited for the later hour of daylight in return! I was just saying yesterday how it was nice to be driving home at 6:30pm and not have it pitch black. Starting Sunday, the sun will just be setting!

As always, I like to remind you that when you change your clocks, it is a good idea to change your batteries in your smoke detectors. Firefighters recommend changing your smoke detector batteries twice a year, and the time change is the perfect reminder!

Happy Almost-Spring!
