It’s time to change the clocks again.
Daylight Savings Time (DST) also called Summer Time (in some countries) happens tonight.
Spring forward… Fall behind. About 70 countries have Daylight Savings Time (DST) in some areas of their country. The premise behind DST is to move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening.
This means it will be darker when we get up … but we’ll have more light at the end of the day.
Right now in the Denver, Colorado area– the sun rises at 6:16 am and sets at 6:04 pm.
Tomorrow – the sun will rise at 7:15 am and set at 7:05 pm.
Japan, India, and China are the only major industrialized countries that do not observe some form of daylight saving.
Love it or hate it — we’re stuck with it for now. Daylight Savings Time … tedious and frustrating or energy-saving and worthwhile?
