Spring Ahead, to Fall back!

Once again, as it does every year just like Christmas and Tax day, Daylight Saving Time begins. For those who don’t know the rhyme we spring ahead, in other words set the clock forward one hour, in the spring and fall backward, set the clock time back one hour, in the fall.

In 2005 President Bush signed into law the Energy Policy Act of 2005. With this law the dates of the beginning and end of Daylight Saving Time were changed. The new dates for DST begin on the second Sunday of March and end the first Sunday of November.

Also as a Public Service Announcement, fire departments recommends that you change the battery in the smoke detector when you change the clock. It’s said that a working smoke detector more than doubles a person’s chances of surviving a home fire, but it’s estimated that 1/3 of the homes with smoke detectors have dead or missing batteries.
