Daylight Saving Time Fun Facts

Calling them “Fun Facts” might be a bit of a stretch but I’m sure you don’t know as much as you should about Daylight Saving Time. This weekend we adjust the clocks because we are told to do so. You don’t want to be the one that is stubborn about this. Your life will be quite confusing.

This is riviting stuff, so sit back and prepare to learn something folks.

According to the California Energy Commission, this is what you need to know.
Spring forward…Fall back

Daylight Saving Time – for the U.S. and its territories – is NOT observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and by most of Arizona (with the exception of the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona).

One of the biggest reasons we change our clocks to Daylight Saving Time (DST) is that it reportedly saves electricity. Newer studies, however, are challenging long-held reason.

In the winter, the afternoon Daylight Saving Time advantage is offset by the morning’s need for more lighting. In spring and fall, the advantage is less than one hour. So, Daylight Saving Time saves energy for lighting in all seasons of the year except for the four darkest months of the year (November, December, January and February) when the afternoon advantage is offset by the need for lighting because of late sunrise.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

If you still happen to be reading this, (and shame on you if you are) just remember one thing.  Turn your clocks BACK when you go to bed Saturday night. If you live in Arizona, you don’t have to because you’re special!!
