Move your clocks forward Sunday

With flowers budding and fruit trees blooming, it already feels like spring. After this weekend, the days will extend and there will be more time for playing in the yard or digging in the garden.
Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday morning, March 12, at 2 a.m., pushing clocks forward one hour. Sunrise and sunset on March 12 will be an hour later than the day before as we begin the march to the longest day of the year, Wednesday, June 21.
Cable TV fans can accommodate their need to go outdoors, by recording shows on their DVR or by streaming them online after the sun has gone down. In most cases, you can record more than one program at a time or set up for series recordings.
While many people put an “s” at the end of time, the official name is Daylight Saving Time. It is also known as Summer Time, and in some rural regions it is called Fast Time. In Italy, it is called Legal Time, meaning that the adjustment is legally enforced.
Whatever you call it, don’t forget that it starts this Sunday. And if you can’t remember which way to turn your clock, just remember: “Spring forward, fall back!”
