Did You Know Daylight Savings Time Goes into Effect this Weekend?

Did you know Daylight Savings Time goes into effect this weekend?

Just a reminder to spring ahead one hour tonight/tomorrow morning at 2. Set your clock ahead one hour. Yes, you "lose" that one hour of sleep. It is supposed to help us save energy on lighting by using the natural light longer into the evening hours. While I have read that the savings are minimal, lots of people enjoy the longer hours of daylight.

To learn more about Daylight Savings Time and it's origins, you can read what Yahoo News had to say about it today.

Yes, I remembered. I have to admit though that I am not a fan of daylight saving time, having lived in places on both sides of it (Arizona does not participate).

yes, I saw AZ on that list. I wonder if it's hard doing national things (flights/trains/business) when rest of nation is on different time?

I am not crazy about it either....
