Smartphones, computers and other electronic devices don’t need to remember “Spring Ahead, Fall Back” – our devices magically adjust to time changes. Like Saturday night, when Daylight Savings Time officially begins. We’ll “lose” an hour of sleep overnight, but those who enjoy more daylight in their day are entering their favorite time of year.
Sunrise on Sunday Mar. 13 is 7:27 a.m. and sunset is 7:19 p.m. – that’s almost 12 hours of daylight to get more done – from gardening to detailing your car, shooting hoops in the driveway or riding bikes and enjoying a walk in the park – going back outside after dinner for chores or playtime is back on the table, beginning Sunday.
Not everyone loves daylight savings time, but they’ll have to put up with it through the summer and fall.
DST fans have until November to enjoy it – it will be time to “fall back” on Nov. 6.
