Did You Spring Forward?

Daylight savings happens three weeks early this year. I would have completely forgotten about it if Ashley hadn’t told me to move my clock ahead by an hour last night.

Normally, your computers and VCR/DVD recorders will adjust for day light saving times all by itself because it knows the dates to “spring forward” and “fall back.” However, because the US decided to spring forward three weeks early, you’ll most likely have to manually adjust the clock today. Then you’ll have to adjust it again in three weeks.

The US estimates moving to daylight saving time three weeks earlier than schedule will save $47 billion in the next four years. And here I thought the only reason we do daylight savings was to watch the sun set at 8PM.

Do you have daylight savings where you are? I heard some countries go ahead by two hours instead of one, but I forgot their names.
