Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday March 9, 2014

Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday March 9, 2014


It's that time again. Sunday, March 9, at 2am we Spring Daylight Saving TimeForward an hour for Daylight Saving Time (DST).



DST was established in 1966 in the United States under the Uniform Time Act. Even so, it has never been mandatory for the States to follow. Hawaii, Arizona and parts of Indiana do not follow DST.



Recently the sun has been coming up as wa awakened. This early change of the DST will have us waking up in the dark again. There will, of course be an extra hour of sunlight in the evening. Then in November it will return to Standard time.

There have been many studies about how Daylight Saving Time affects one's health and if in fact, it reduces our annual energy output.

Either way, for most of us, we will be rising an hour earlier on Monday when we head into work.

I am very happy that it will be light an hour later. It sure helps with those evening home showings.

I don't think I can afford to lose an hour of sleep. Early bedtime for me in order to adjust!

I think that it should be DST all year round.  Even in winter we hate losing that last hour of daylight!

 Good morning, Connie. I am looking forward to that extra hour of daylight in the evening.

By the way, when is our meet up? I need to get that marked in the calendar.

Hi Connie.  Bring on daylight savings time.  It will make showing houses at night easier.

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) about 6 years ago

Hi Connie, I agree with Conrad. People who can't go out until after work will get a chance to see the homes in daylight!

Scott - That makes good sense, but I don't need any reason to work later than I dod!

Shannon - It'll probably take me a week to get used to it since it's so early this year.

Ron - That's what a lot of people think!

Joanna - It does mean my husband can cook out now!

Chris Ann - I guess I'm in the minority. :-)

Tammie - OMGosh me too! I just did 7+ miles at Warner Park and it was glorious out!

Cindy - They went to an exotic island this week and I haven't talked to them since they got back. It's pretty complicated.

Tom - Yes. Dang is right!

Michael - the meet up is March 27th. I'll do another post on it.

Conrad - You and everyone else seem to love it. Forget showing at night. Go home. Be with your wife.

Tom - You guys are work-aholics!

I am glad i remembered . I will call my clients this morning to remind them of my open house timings .

I may have imagined this, but I thought I heard that Tennessee was considering not changing to DST.  Obviously not this year.  Have you heard that?
