Spring ahead–daylight savings time


Don’t forget to turn those clocks ahead an hour tonight (or at 2am if you’re still up).  Dang, I hate “losing” that hour!

We can have a debate about whether daylight savings time actually saves energy as it’s intended.  The research is mixed.  And it in part depends on where in your time zone you live–to the East or to the West.  And I’m sure there are a few opinions, to boot.   There’s a interesting overview of the whens and whys in National Geographic.

But whether it saves energy or not, if you don’t set you clocks ahead, you’ll be late today or tomorrow.  (Folks in Arizona and Hawaii–nevermind.  Your states don’t recognize daylight savings time!)
