NEW Daylight Savings Time

The days are getting longer (in terms of the amount of daylight - never long enough for everything I try to get done) and we are getting closer to daylight savings time.

I have always liked it when the time changed in April - "spring ahead, fall back". Even as a kid this was a big deal - being able to play outside in the light longer in the evening was huge! And it meant summer was getting close. Here's a fun article about DST and its history.

Conversely, I hate when the time changes back, and it always takes days for me to adjust. While living in Boston the change in time always signaled the beginning of much colder weather, at least for me. And I hated that. Especially leaving work in the dark.

But that's not the point here. You are probably aware, but in case you are not - daylight savings time will be different this year. Congress approved the change last year, which means we will have 3 more weeks of DST.

So put it on your calendar:

DST will start on the second Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday in November (i.e., after Halloween).
