Daylight Saving Time is when clocks are set one hour ahead of the local standard time. In the summer, this gives us an extra hour of daylight in the evening. Now that it is March 1, get ready to move your clocks forward in a few weeks.
From the NAVY website:
Starting in 2007, daylight time begins in the United States on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. On the second Sunday in March, clocks are set ahead one hour at 2:00 a.m. local standard time, which becomes 3:00 a.m. local daylight time. On the first Sunday in November, clocks are set back one hour at 2:00 a.m. local daylight time, which becomes 1:00 a.m. local standard time. These dates were established by Congress in the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Pub. L. no. 109-58, 119 Stat 594 (2005).
This year, Daylight Saving Time will begin on March, March 14 – and last until Sunday, November 7th.
