Daylight Saving Time Begins

Early Sunday morning the time will leap forward one hour.  Set the clock ahead an hour before going to bed so you won’t be late for church.  Most newer cell phones, tablets and computers will set themselves ahead, so you won’t have to.

DST has been around since 1916 and first was used in Germany as a way to conserve fuel during WWI.  The date was May 1, 1916.  The US adopted DST in March of 1918.

Here in Louisiana the State Fire Marshall urges putting fresh batteries in your smoke alarm when the time changes.

From the Nitpicker a Note:  Many people say “daylight savings” time.  There is no “s” it’s just Daylight Saving Time.
