Spring is coming

Daylight Saving Time for 2019 starts on Sunday, March 10, at 2 a.m. To wake up to the correct time, set your clocks forward an hour before hitting the hay on Saturday night. The bad part is we get to sleep an hour less on Sunday morning. The good part is we get more daylight to do stuff and the hours of daylight will be getting longer.

The longest day of the year comes on June 21, the first day of summer. After that, the slow decrease in minutes of daylight per day leads inevitably to the shortest day of the year and first day of winter on December 21. By then it will be getting dark pretty early since Daylight Saving Time for 2019 ends on November 3.

The weather is subject to sudden change this time of year, so if you plan on a spring outing or need to drive over the hill, be sure to check the weather forecast and highway conditions before starting out.
