daylight savings time

daylight savings time

Daylight savings time begins tonights which sees an extra hour of sunlight available in the evening which means backyard barbecues and other events that you want to partake in on the evening outside can last a little longer with more daylight to enjoy.

Set clocks ahead an hour before going to bed Saturday night, even though the change doesn't occur officially until 2 a.m. Sunday, local time. And safety experts say this also is a good time to put new batteries in smoke detectors and other warning devices. Some parts of the country don't observe daylight saving time. Those include Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.

So although you will be losing an hour in bed tonight the flipside is that there is an extra hour of daylight tomorrow and from now on on an evening.
