Just as you get used to the “falling back” of the time, “spring forward” is coming. Oh, the dreaded Daylight Saving Time. Some ask why we still do this? Is this totally necessary?
Well, the answer is not clear and if changed, who would enact this change? For now, all but one of those in the Contiguous (Continental) United States observes it. In addition to Arizona, six U.S. territories also do not observe daylight saving time. Those of us who are not Arizonans should plan to set our clocks forward one hour on Sunday, March 11, 2018, at 2:00 a.m. If you plan on going to bed before 2:00 a.m. on Saturday night and you need to wake up at a certain time Sunday morning, you should set your clocks forward one hour before falling asleep. The modern technology of smartphones and computers will not require any changes on your part, your phone and computer will automatically make the change.
Fire Departments have, for years, used Daylight Saving Time as a reminder to change the batteries in our home smoke and carbon dioxide detectors. Changing these batteries will not only stop the battery-low “chirp” but may save the lives of you and your family members.
