Don’t forget to turn your clock back tonight as it is Daylight Savings time again! Remember, this is also a great time to check your batteries in your smoke detectors!
Here is a little history on Daylight Savings time…
Why do clocks change at 2:00 a.m. in the U.S.?
In the spring, clocks spring forward from 1:59 a.m. to 3:00 a.m.; in the fall, clocks fall back from 1:59 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. The time was originally chosen because it minimized disruption. Most people were home at the fewest trains were running at 2:00 a.m. It is late enough to minimally affect bars and restaurants, and it prevents the day from switching to yesterday, which would be confusing. It is early enough that the entire continental U.S. switches by daybreak, and the changeover occurs before most early shift workers and early churchgoers are affected.
