Tick, Tock, Time to Turn Up the Clock

It is time to lose an hour of sleep and ‘Spring Forward’ before you go to bed on Saturday night. Sunday, March 11, 2012 at 2am Daylight Savings Time begins – also known as DST or Summer Time. DST is the practice of advancing clocks forward by one hour in the spring to gain additional daylight during the early evening. In the fall, clocks are again turned back an hour. The U.S. federal law that established “daylight time” in this country does not require its observance. Arizona, Hawaii, and the territories of Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, and American Samoa do not use DST. These areas receive so much sun throughout the year that gaining another hour of sunlight in the summertime is not seen as a benefit.

This also means we are back to two days a week watering…only once per day and no more than a hour per zone.
