Don't forget to set your clocks ahead an hour before you go to sleep on Saturday, March 7th.

Officially for 2009, Daylight Savings Time begins Sunday, March 8th at 2 a.m. -- 3 weeks earlier than previous years. Interestingly enough, this new date was made to boost energy savings. According to an NPR.com article: "The bottom line is that it's going to save energy," says Fred Upton, a Republican congressman from Michigan who pushed the change. "For every single day that we extend daylight-saving time, we would save the energy equivalent of 100,000 barrels of oil."

I don't know about you, but it works for me! Bring on Spring!
