Move your clocks ahead by one hour Saturday night
Before you go to bed tonight, remember to climb up a step stool to reach higher and move all of your clocks forward by one hour.
Daylight Saving begins on Sunday at 2 a.m.
This means you will lose one hour of sleep from Saturday night to Sunday morning.
Chances are, the electronic device you are reading this on will automatically update the time.
Smartphones, computers, and anything connected to Wi-Fi or a network will adjust the time without any effort on your part.
The clocks on the wall will likely need to be changed by hand, as will the clocks in your car, on your microwave, and on the other old-fashioned devices in your home.
The grandfather clock that has been in the family for ages will need your assistance, too.
It is a good idea to change the battery in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors twice a year. Each Daylight Saving is one such opportunity to do that.
For various reasons, one hour is stolen in the spring and is given back in the autumn.
One reason for the change dates back to World War I, when expensive fuels used to produce electricity needed to be conserved.
You will get your hour back on Nov. 3.
