Just a friendly reminder that for folks in Pennsylvania need to remember to “spring ahead” and set their clocks ahead 1 hour before they go to bed on Saturday, March 12, to ensure they are on time for whatever plans they may have for Sunday.

Timetemperature.com website has information about Daylight Saving Time in the United States.  Those of us in Pennsylvania are among those who need to change our clocks twice a year, and tonight is the night we “spring ahead” and set our clocks ahead one hour.

This November 1, 2013 article on the Journal Review Online website reminds those of us who need to reset our clocks in the spring and fall to do so tonight, but also offers a glimpse into the history behind why we do this.

 

 

 

“Daylight saving time: Can springing ahead save energy or money? “

Article Link

This March 8, 2013 article on the Christian Science Monitor website talks about the history of Daylight Saving Time and talks about whether the thinking that it would save money to adjust the clock in the spring and fall really works or not.

Daylight Saving Time begins March 10, 2013

Just a reminder to folks who live in places where the clocks get changed in the spring and fall, that Sunday, March 10 at 2:00am it will once again be time to change our clocks.  Since it is in March we’ll be turning them ahead 1 hour.

For those who experience Daylight Saving time, it’s that time again … the time when we set our clocks back an hour of course there is always someone who doesn’t change their clocks and is either really late or really early for the first thing they have scheduled on clock changing day which occurrs in the spring and fall every year.  So, if you don’t want to be the one person who is obviously out of sync with the rest of the people around you, you may want to take a few minutes to go around and turn your clocks ahead before you go to bed …. or if you prefer to be right on time, you could stay up until 2am and change them then when the time officially changes.

In case you’re wondering, I scheduled this post back in March when I realized compliments of the Erie Times-News that I had to turn my clocks ahead a little thing I was totally clueless to beyond knowing it was “coming up”.  So this goofy post is as much for myself as it is for my readers…. I can never remember when to change my clocks just that it happens in the spring and fall so now you know how clueless I can be and that I schedule posts in advance this one was written on March 11, 2012 the day I discovered by way of the newspaper I need to change my clocks.
