Spring Forward; Don't Forget to Adjust Your Clocks Saturday Night!

The Groundhog told us that we had another 6 weeks of winter a month ago, but Groundhog Day begins the countdown to Spring. And, as the leaves start to sprout, bulbs start to shoot upwards, we need to remember that the Clocks soon need to be SPRING FORWARD!

Most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.

In the European Union, Summer Time begins and ends at 1:00 a.m. Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). It begins the last Sunday in March and ends the last Sunday in October. In the EU, all time zones change at the same moment.

Spring forward, Fall back

During DST, clocks are turned forward an hour, effectively moving an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening.

Year DST Begins @2AM DST Ends @2AM
