This Saturday night, before you go to bed, be sure to set your clocks ahead one hour, as we begin Daylight Savings Time three weeks early this year.
While it is thought that starting Daylight Savings Time early will save energy (if it stays light later in the day...that's less electricity we will need to use to light our homes and businesses...), there are dissenting opinions which doubt that any substantial energy savings will actually occur.
Sunday morning, check your computers, PDAs and other technology tools to make sure they have all been updated accurately. If they have not changed their time overnight, then check to see if there are available updates to download to adjust for this new Daylight Savings Time schedule. It may make sense to check for those updates before Sunday.
While you're at it, take this opportunity to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors. Replacing the smoke detector batteries twice each year - coinciding with when we change our clocks - ensures that you will be protected in your home in the event of fire.
