On Sunday March 14, 2010, It's time, again, for Daylight Savings. At  2:00 am, we will change our clocks to one hour ahead of their current time. Instead of 2:00 am, it will be 3:00 am.

For those Marines out there, don't forget we have to ditch our Woodlands to don the Desert Utilities with sleeves rolled up beginning Sunday - if you're working Sunday, that is.

Daylight Savings will end on November 7, 2010 at 2:00 AM.

Daylight Savings was initially created during WWI, and also observed during WWII to save energy for war production. However, Daylight Savings was not standardized until 1966, when the Uniform Time Act was passed. Daylight Savings is not observed in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Samoa and Virgin Islands. The idea behind Daylight Savings is that it allows us to save energy and take advantage of longer day light hours.
