Almost Forgot...

As the U.S. Naval Observatory page on the subject notes:

Starting in 2007, daylight time begins in the United States on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. On the second Sunday in March, clocks are set ahead one hour at 2:00 a.m. local standard time, which becomes 3:00 a.m. local daylight time. On the first Sunday in November, clocks are set back one hour at 2:00 a.m. local daylight time, which becomes 1:00 a.m. local standard time. These dates were established by Congress in the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Pub. L. no. 109-58, 119 Stat 594 (2005).

Daylight Time

Did you remember to "fall backward" this morning? Or, like me, did you just notice that your computer's clock is an hour earlier than every other clock in your home? If you're an American, and you don't live in Arizona, then hopefully one of those things is true.

If not, consider this a reminder.
