Daylight Saving Time begins soon

My Ferndale News graphic

Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, March 9th at 2am. Clocks need to be set to 3am or one hour later (“spring ahead”).

Daylight Saving Time runs from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November throughout the world. In the US, it is a federal law but states can request to be exempted. This year, Washington state legislators are discussing whether to put Washington state on Daylight Saving Time permanently.

Like these other states, not everyone sees value in moving clocks forward in the spring and backward in the fall. Moving clocks forward will likely result in the loss of an hour of sleep, making it more difficult to get out of bed for work or school for a while. But it also provides an extra hour of sunlight at the end of the day.
