Have you noticed that daylight is hanging around a little bit longer these days? That’s going to increase even more as we “Spring Forward” early Sunday morning.
This weekend, on March 8 at 2 a.m., we return to Daylight Saving Time as we once again move our clocks forward by an hour to 3 a.m. local daylight time. And, of course, that means we will lose an hour of sleep.
Clocks on most electronics like cell phones and computers and some alarm clocks will update automatically overnight, moving forward from 2 to 3 a.m. Other household clocks such as those on alarm clocks, microwaves, stoves and car radios will have to be manually updated.
The only two states that do not observe daylight-saving time are Arizona and Hawaii. American territories American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands do not either.
While walking about your home changing those clocks, it’s also a good time to change the batteries in our smoke detectors. Fire departments around the country recommend it; it’s a super reminder and extremely important in keeping us all safe from fires in our homes.
