Daylight Savings aka Summer Time Reminder- Sunday March 10th @2 am (United States)

Taken at the Clock Museum in Second Life

What is Daylight Savings?
It is a shift in time created to benefit sports, retail and other activities that could use extra sunlight time after work hours. What it doesn't benefit is sleep and eat patterns, meetings, billing, travel and record keeping. Try to resist eating to late in the day to prevent disrupting your sleep. Another piece of advice is to adjust a clock in your home an hour ahead on Friday Night to continue eating and sleeping on your current schedule this weekend so that by Monday morning, your body will be adjusted for the work week!

Retrieved from, Daylight Savings Time, or DST, begins on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November.  In March, clocks are moved forward one hour from 2am standard time to 3am DST, and in November, clocks are moved back one hour from 2am DST to 1am standard time.  The phrase "spring forward, fall back" is a helpful reminder of these time changes.
