Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time - Change Your Clocks on Sunday

It's that time of year when we gain another hour's sleep by reverting to Standard Time.  Don't forget to turn your clocks back one hour Saturday evening. Standard time begins at 2:00 am on Sunday.

Daylight Savings Time was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin following his trip to Paris where Europeans were changing their clocks to enjoy more daylight in the morning.  DST also saves energy.  According to the Department of Transportation, DST trims the entire country's electricity usage by a small but significant amount, because less electricity is used for lighting and appliances.

Enjoy your extra hour sleep knowing you are saving energy.  Who would have thought?
