Spring Forward into Daylight Savings on March 9th

As the winter deep-freeze gives way to warming temperatures, the warmth and sunlight can be a welcome change. So much so, in fact, that after the short winter days and long, dark nights, Daylight Saving Time approaches quickly in the early spring season. On the second Sunday in March, we spring forward.

At the beginning of Daylight Saving Time, the clocks are set forward an hour. This provides an additional hour of daylight at the end of the day. The loss of the hour typically happens around 2:00 AM on the Sunday that the time change takes effect, so many people take the opportunity to get ahead of it by changing the clocks Saturday night before they go to sleep.

Many digital devices including computers, cell phones and tablets will automatically adjust for the time change, but appliances, watches and car radios do not. Set a reminder for the second Sunday in March so that you remember to change the current time on your clocks.

Daylight Savings Time is a great time for you to do an insurance coverage review as well. Call ISU Wissink Insurance to review your coverage and current needs.
