Who remembers when Daylight Saving Time returns? I never do. It's now officially on the second Sunday in March at 2:00 am.

So, it's NOT this week-end. (March 6).

So get ready a week from Sunday to move all your non-automatically changing clocks AHEAD one hour; Spring forward, Fall back.

This isn't a countdown thread, but we have 9 days left as of this post to enjoy Standard Time.

Daylight Saving Time already? :cartmansmirk:

I'm sorry, but I don't like changing my clocks twice a year. That's one of the drawbacks of living in Texas: We observe Daylight Saving Time. (Of course, we also have two time zones. The westernmost counties (El Paso, etc.) are part of the Mountain Time Zone. The rest of the state is in the Central Time Zone.)

Call me lazy, but I don't want to have to do that. :|

Your welcome :)

Under the law passed in 2005, the dates kept changing in a "transition" period. Now it is set: Daylight Saving Time (no "s" as in Savings; only "Saving") now starts every year on the second Sunday of March. Then 34 weeks later, standard time begins on the first Sunday in November. Then there are only 18 weeks of standard time, then daylight saving time starts again.

So the ratio is 34 weeks of daylight time/18 weeks of standard time.

I hate Standard Time, too. :/ I just want time to stay the way it is, whichever time they want to decide on.

Well it is good to know the time other people are living through even though they don't live in AZ;

As of this Post, Friday, 8:05 am:

1 day, 17 hours, 55 minutes until 2:00 am Sunday.

That means, less then 48 hours before we change to Daylight Saving Time. Enjoy Standard Time while you still can.

This Sunday, 2:00 am will really become 3:00 am; there will be NO 2:00 am this Sunday.
