It's Time to Spring Ahead in Madison

Tomorrow night, Saturday, March 9, most responsible Americans set their clocks ahead and kiss goodbye (or goodnight) to the hour we won't see again until November.

Daylight Saving Time 2019 (note: it is Saving is singular) begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 10, and ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 3.

What does this mean?  At 2 a.m. on Sunday, you will lose an hour or spring forward an hour and the correct time will be 3 a.m.  This hour is not lost forever. On November 3, 2019, the clocks will be readjusted backward and you will gain an hour.

For many of us, the adjustment of clocks will be minimal since smartphones, tablets, computers and more adjust automatically.  However, the adjustment of our body clocks might take a bit longer, so prepare yourself for a "tired Monday!"

The idea of daylight saving was the brainchild of Benjamin Franklin, aka, the 'early to be, early to rise' guy, back in 1784.

Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
