Yes, friends! We are almost there! Only one completely dark weekend left and one more dark week. (I'm writing this on the evening of February 28th, 2018, around 8:30 p.m. Central Standard Time.)We've noticed earlier evenings even though we've had many grey days lately: When it is sunny out, it is still light until after 5 p.m.
But on Sunday evening March 11th....
We Spring Ahead! Daylight Savings Time in 2018 starts Sunday, March 11th. We need to move our clocks ahead one hour on Saturday night and we get one less hour of sleep, but it will seem worth it when we notice that we can still see our hands in front of our faces at 7 p.m.! Enjoy!
So: Turn your clocks FORWARD Saturday night, March 11th, before you go to bed. Spring ahead!!
