Daylight Savings Time

Spring Forward

Wow, has today not been absolutely miserable, ugh! The rain, the clouds, the darkness . . . not good. I live in the Great Valley and we lost our power at 7:30 AM and we just got it back on — 3:30 PM, 8 hours. Isn’t it amazing how much you come to depend on electricity. Since the outage only involved 350 homes I am assuming that PECO had higher priority situations. Regardless, I’m certainly glad that power has been restored in my neighborhood!

It’s that time of the year again when we switch to daylight savings time. The sun will begin to rise earlier and set later with our days getting longer and longer. Hopefully, our longer days will be full of sunshine (and not too much more of this rain), which is certainly not the case today! To stay current on the time change, you’ll want to set your clock ahead one hour before you go to bed tonight. The phrase “Spring forward, Fall back” helps people remember how Daylight Saving Time affects their clocks. At 2 AM on the second Sunday in March, we set our clocks forward one hour ahead.
