Daylight Savings Time...Lose An Hour


 

Most of our essential clocks change to Daylight Savings Time automatically.

 

Remember the phrase "Spring forward, Fall back" which reminds us how Daylight Saving Time affects all our time telling devices.

There are still some that have to be manually changed like our wall clocks,  watches, older car clocks and few other things we might miss for a few weeks.

 

This Sunday, the second Sunday in March, the time telling devices

"Spring Forward" at 2 a.m.

Please don't forget to set your clocks ahead one hour.

It is a good idea to remind your Sunday appointments of the time change.

                                            

Changing these devices will ensure that I will be on time for my 12-noon radio show.

This isn't a reminder to spring forward so much as a reminder not to MISS a great time of year to get your home ready for the Spring market

 It's time to Spring forward and get your home listed.

Margaret, never been a fan of these hours falling forward and falling backwards... it reaps havoc on my system and the animal farm does not like it either, either breakfast and dinner is early or late, Endre

Yes indeed!  Spring ahead!  And it is one of the best real-estate periods of the year traditionally, although in this area things really have not slowed down this past year.  But spring is also time for a lot of maintenance and cleaning and one often overlooked is the chimney, fireplace and woodstove!

Good morning Margaret - I am looking forwad to springing forward.  I am also glad the the temperature will cooperate after a very cold week.

Good morning Margaret. Gladly lose an hour to get better daylight. Springing forward is easy, falling back, not so much! Enjoy your day!

Hi Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - In Arizona and Hawaii, we don't change our clocks.  But it affects us probably more.  As a Sedona REALTOR®, my clients are from all over the country.  I have to be cognizant of what time it is in every other state.  Am I on the same time as California or Colorado? Am I ...one or 2 hours different from Chicago or 2 or 3 hours from NYC?  This goes on for 2 to 3 weeks. 

I just wish we did not make any changes. If Hawaii and Arizona can do it so can all the rest of the states. I am open to keeping Daylight Savings all year but I am also fine using Standard Time. The arguments are old and tired for moving the clocks every March and November.

Good morning, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland I truly think most homeowners who are serious about selling soon are already beginning their search for the right agent.... and some are listing now before others decide to give them competition.... I spent most of yesterday preparing marketing for 4 new listings... all taken in one day!!

I fly back to Oklahoma City from San Francisco tomorrow and the flight back I always take is leaving an hour later. I think this is due to crews having a certain amount of time between flights.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® Good talking with you this morning. Your comment would make a great stand-alone blog. I can see where you would have a harder time than those of us who automatically change.

Joe Pryor That hour makes a big difference if you have a plane schedule. Does not hurt to check a couple of times to be sure.

Margaret, why  can't the country be like in  Arizona? Not sure when the politicians passed this law if what they intended actually materialized. Endre

Hi Margaret,  I had to change three clocks and my watch.  Someday I'll be fully in the digital age.

Gail Robinson Good idea to change the clocks early.
