Daylight Savings Time Is Almost Here, And Here’s When To Spring Those Clocks Forward

My least favorite day of the year is almost upon us.

Daylight Savings Time is here.

Get ready to spring those clocks forward, and lose a precious hour of your life.

I guess I should think positive, and focus on the fact that it won’t get dark until 7pm now — and slowly later and later.

And, that means that spring is really almost here — cue the blooming flowers, chirping birds, buzzing bees, shorts, and flip flops.

But, really, I just don’t want to lose that coveted hour of sleep.


Doesn’t it always leave you feeling like a zombie for a couple days, existing on coffee and fumes?

There are a couple states that have opted not to participate in Daylight Savings Time.

If you live in Arizona (with the exception of the Navajo Nation) or Hawaii, you get to leave your clocks as is, and not disrupt your lives at all.

There are also a few U.S. territories — Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands — that do not observe DST and stay on standard time all year long.

But, everyone else, get prepared for the biggest disruptive circadian rhythm change of the year.

So, when exactly is Daylight Savings Time?

This year, it falls the night between March 11th and March 12th at 2:00 am your local time.

Make sure you fill up your coffee pots, and set them to brew. It’s going to be a rough couple of days while we try to adjust our sleep. LOL!
