Spring Ahead! Daylight Saving Time Begins – It’s that time again! Time to SPRING AHEAD! or Spring Forward however you want to look at it.
Spring Ahead! Daylight Saving Time Begins
That means we lose one hour. If you don’t set your clocks ahead one hour you will be late for church. You will be arriving as everyone else is leaving. We set our times ahead at 2:00 a.m. making it 3:00 a.m. That means one less hour of sleep so you may want to go to bed earlier.
Change Your Clocks,
Change Your Batteries
We Spring Ahead in Spring … Before you go to bed on Saturday, March 7, 2020, be sure to set your clocks ahead one hour. If you forget, you may just be late for church in the morning, because official time change is at 2 am on Sunday, March 8, 2020.
While you are up changing the time on the clocks; it is still a good idea to also change your batteries in all your safety equipment such as smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, weather radios, flashlights, etc.
Check this post on Fire Safety 101.
I know that most clocks now are atomic or self adjusting to time changes, but we still should at least set this day aside for changing our batteries in our life saving devices.
We fall back in the fall … Sunday, November 1, 2020 at 2 a.m. when Daylight Saving Time Ends.
Also check out the Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery about changing your batteries when you change your time on your clocks.

Places don’t observe Daylight Saving Time (DST)
Most areas of the United States do observe daylight saving time Below is a list of those that don’t. Some states are now starting to end this practice.
- Arizona (except for the Navajo, who do observe daylight saving time on tribal lands)
- American Samoa
- Northern Mariana Islands
- Puerto Rico
- Virgin Islands
There has been some talk about some other states to join not observing DST. Florida is one of them, along with Tennessee. Not to mention, there is another bill out to do away with this nationwide.
Time Change and Your Health
How switching the clocks can affect your health – Even though the energy savings associated with DST can be significant, some suggest those savings come at the expense of human health.
