Don’t forget to ‘spring forward’

Posted March 5, 2014 at 2:28 pm


The majority of residents in Albany and Clinton County, as well as many other Central Time Zone residents in Kentucky and across the nation, won’t mind losing an hour’s sleep this weekend in exchange for longer days and shorter nights that will follow.

Central Daylight Saving Time officially returns this coming Sunday morning, March 9 at 2 a.m., marking the end of Standard Time for about the next seven months.

The time always means more daylight hours through the spring, summer and early fall months and hopefully will also help signal the ensuing end of a somewhat long, cold winter that has prevailed since November.

Readers are reminded of the old adage, Spring Forward/Fall Back and should set the clocks and watches ahead one hour before bedtime Saturday night or first thing Sunday morning.

Central Daylight Saving Time will remain in effect until the first Sunday in November.
