This weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the year. Why? Because we set our clocks back to standard time, getting a extra hour on Saturday night! (I know it's technically Sunday Morning, but a longer Saturday night just sounds more fun.)
Daylight Saving Time starts this Sunday, March 10th, 2013. It could possibly be my least favorite weekend of the year. Why? Because we get to 'spring forward' and lose an hour of precious sleep on Saturday night.
It also means that, inevitably, I will forget to set one of my clocks ahead and end up being late for something important next week.
Whether it helps retail business, gives the rooster extra shut eye or reduces crime there is one thing that is crystal clear about Daylight Saving time: Spring and warmer weather are knocking on the door.
