Time to “Spring Forward” Everyone!

Strawberry Alarm Clock by Joost J. Bakker
It is that time of the year again when we all lose an hour of sleep, but get one extra hour of beautiful sunshine in exchange!
In the overnight hours of March 11, clocks will traditionally skip the 2 A.M. hour for Daylight Savings. This way, the period of daylight in the afternoon hours will be longer than the hours of daylight in the mornings. Slowly moving away from the darker days in winter, we will enjoy more longer days from now on. So don't forget to set your clocks 1 hour ahead before going to sleep on Saturday night!
