If you listen to the Y101 Radio morning show you already know that the Big Dog celebrated Spring's arrival Sunday when March 1 came. It is my belief Winter is November through February. Once March gets here, Spring gets here with it. But officially Spring will not arrive until March 19. This winter has certainly been long enough.

The one bright spot now is the days are lighter longer and that is a good thing. Another thing to consider coming up, which is also a sign that spring is not that far off, is the day that Daylight Saving Time arrives.

This year the return of Daylight Saving Time is set for this Sunday, March 8. That’s the day we change the clocks again springing forward one hour. So at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 8, we move the clocks to 3 a.m. Most of us will be sleeping so we actually will lose an hour sleep, which is the hour we gained last November.

If I had my way we would just leave the clocks alone in Daylight Saving mode. The clock changes are good though for one safety reason in that is a reminder to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
