Spring Forward Much Sooner!

I never liked the idea of setting our clocks back in the fall. Its much nicer I think having the extra sunlight at the end of the day rather than the beginning.

Well, we will get to increase the number of weeks to enjoy later sunsets. In fact, Congress enacted the Energy Policy Act in 2005 that will give us 1 more month of Daylight Savings.

This year, Daylight Savings begins on March 11th and ends on November 4th. YEAH!

Over the next few weeks leading up to 3/11, we'll be hearing warnings of Y2K-like problems with computers and clocks since some equipment may not know about the early time change this year.

I'm not so worried. I'll be an hour ahead.
