For those of you that live in the time zone affected by Daylight Saving Time, be sure to set your clocks one hour ahead before you go to bed tonight. We “Spring Forward”. There’s been many pros and cons about this time change, the main reason was to conserve energy. Since it began, there are split decisions, we don’t save the electricity for lights, due to the fact that it is darker in the mornings, rather than earlier evening darkness in the Central Standard Time. Drivers going to work must watch for children on their way to their school bus stop. It should only take a few days to adjust, so please drive carefully and enjoy the new, longer lasting sunshine each day.
Also, we are reminded to change our batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. This is an ideal time to perform that function that could save your life. Have a good week ahead! Wednesday, March 20th, is the first day of Spring.
