Spring forward!

WASHINGTON (AP) ” Time to trade an hour’s sleep for more sunlight in the evenings.

Most people will set their clocks forward one hour this weekend. Officially the change to daylight saving time should be made at 2 a.m. Sunday, local time, though many folks will reset their clocks and watches before going to bed.

The shift also serves as a reminder to install new batteries in warning devices like smoke detectors and hazard warning radios.



In areas that observe daylight time, standard time will return on Nov. 2.

Some parts of the country don’t observe daylight savings time. Those include Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.



This is the earliest daylight saving day ever. Last year it was on March 11.

Estimates about how much water the Upper Colorado River Basin states will use in the future are a problem that needs rethinking, according to the white paper.
