Did you set your clock forward?

Daylight saving time began at 2 a.m. Sunday, — meaning the clocks have sprung forward an hour.

We lost an hour of sleep, but on the bright side, it’s more likely to be light outside when you leave work in the late afternoon this week.

Your smart phones and computers likely updated themselves, but those kitchen appliances and car clocks most likely will need to be set forward an hour.

Daylight saving time has been practiced in the U.S. since 1918 when Congress passed Standard Time Act to conserve fuel during World War I. It lasted less than a year, but many states continued to follow daylight saving time changes since.
