TICK, TOCK! Time to Move Your Clocks Ahead This Weekend!

TWO-YEAR-OLD EARLIER START TO DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME BEGINS SECOND SUNDAY IN MARCH EACH YEAR!

You know that hour of sleep you gained last fall when you turned your clocks back an hour?  Well, it's time to give it back, at 2:00AM Sunday morning, March 8th!  (For most of us, that means re-setting all of our clocks and wristwatches before we go to bed tonight).  At that time, SPRING AHEAD ONE HOUR, as Daylight Savings Time begins here in Chicago and most other locations across the U.S. and Canada.

Most cell phones, computers, and some car clocks set to satellite radio will automatically reset to the correct time overnight - but please check tomorrow to be sure.

The Chicago Fire Department reminds you that the time change should remind you to check your batteries in your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors, as well as emergency items such as flashlights and portable emergency radios.

Daylight Savings Time remains in effect until Sunday morning, November 2nd, when clocks are reset back once again.

Some parts of the U.S. do not follow Daylight Savings Time.  Arizona is on Mountain Standard Time throughout the year.  Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands also leave their time unchanged.

From the U.S. Naval Observatory, here is a history of Daylight Savings Time, and the schedule for 2009 as well.  Graphic Courtesy of ClipArtHeaven.com.
