Time to ‘spring forward’

Ah, Daylight Saving Time has finally arrived.

Some of us will enjoy the sun rising an hour later every day, while the rest of us will complain about losing an hour of sleep.

While most of us will set our clocks forward one hour when we retire on the evening of Saturday, March 9, the time officially jumps ahead an hour in the wee hours of Sunday, March 10 — springing ahead at 2 a.m.

Hawaii and Arizona (except for the Navaho Nation) are joined by American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto

Rico and the Virgin Islands do not participate in Daylight Saving Times (frequently mislabeled Daylight Savings Time).

The rest of us will lose an hour of shuteye, and we won’t get it back until we return to Standard Time in November.

Here in Lassen County, make sure you spring forward an hour when you go to bed this evening, or you’ll be an hour late for church.
