Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday March 9, 2014
It's that time again. Sunday, March 9, at 2am we Spring Forward 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.
