Say hello to Daylight Saving Time this weekend!
By: Woodlands Online | Published 03/10/2023
Daylight Saving (NOT 'Savings,' despite popular opinion) Time starts this weekend, so be prepared to lose an hour's sleep as you spring forward. The dates this year for DST are Sun, Mar 12, 2023 2:00 AM - Sun, Nov 5, 2023 2:00 AM. Meaning, your best bet is to manually set the times on your wall clocks, smart thermostats, microwave ovens, car dashboard clocks, etc one hour ahead as you get ready to go to bed Saturday night. Your smart phones and computers should update the time automatically.
Meanwhile, the petition to permanently stay at DST is gaining traction, and there's a real possibility that sometime soon we might no longer have to worry about springing forward and falling back.
