Time to Spring Ahead!

Hey, it’s going to be a short weekend.  We lose an hour, because this is the weekend our clocks move ahead one hour into Daylight Saving Time.  I know, it seems really early to me too, but I have to admit, I am going to enjoy the longer evenings.   And the one hour of our weekend we use, worth it.

Daylight Saving Time is four weeks longer since 2007 due to the passage of the Energy Policy Act in 2005. The Act extended Daylight Saving Time by four weeks from the second Sunday of March to the first Sunday of November, with the hope that it would save 10,000 barrels of oil each day through reduced use of power by businesses during daylight hours. Unfortunately, it is exceedingly difficult to determine energy savings from Daylight Saving Time and based on a variety of factors, it is possible that little or no energy is saved by Daylight Saving Time.

Now, I have never noticed any change in heat or light bills for me.  How about you?  And if you do, what part of the world do you live in?

Look forward to hearing from you
