Spring Ahead: Daylight Saving Time Change is Sun., March 9th

It's almost time for the annual "spring ahead" part of Daylight Saving Time. At 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 9th, it will magically become 3 a.m. So set your clock ahead one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night, March 8th, or you'll be running an hour late for everything on Sunday and won't known why.

Setting the clock ahead is considerably easier than getting my mind and body to adjust to the time change of Daylight Saving Time. The time change always messes with me for at least a week, usually more, as the changing daylight hours do a number on my circadian rhythms. You'd think after hundreds of thousands of years of human evolution we'd find it easier to adjust to a one-hour time change, but apparently not.
