We’re going back to the future this weekend… On Sunday, March 9, 2014 (Saturday night) our clocks will strike 3am instead of 2am when Daylight Savings Time kicks back in.
In essence, you’ll be losing an hour of sleep on Saturday night, so if you’ve got something planned early Sunday morning – make sure to get to bed an hour earlier. This is also the time of year people are a hour late for church.
Daylight saving time (DST) is the practice of advancing clocks so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn.
Want an easy way to determine which way the clocks move? In the Fall, time falls back an hour. In the Spring, time springs forward.
