Winter is winding down, spring is just a couple of weeks away and everyone is already noticing that there is more “daylight” between sun-up and sundown.

In just days, the amount of daylight will be even more prevalent when time back to Central Daylight Savings Time (CDST), giving people all across the region an extra hour of daylight for the next several months.

Daylight Savings Time officially begins at 2 a.m. this coming Sunday morning, March 10 and most people don’t mind losing an hour of sleep in order to get that extra time during the day.

Readers are reminded to “spring forward” by setting your watches, clocks, or whatever time device you may use, “ahead” by one hour before bedtime Saturday or first thing Sunday morning.

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