If spring is your favorite season, you got a taste of it early this year. Buds began showing up on plants early in February – along with a whole lot of rain! Hopefully, this week’s touch of winter won’t spoil any of the plants and spring will soon be in full bloom. This weekend there’s that other sign that spring is almost here – the changing of the clocks. With a bit of luck, you got to enjoy that last extra hour’s sleep Sunday because next weekend Daylight Saving Time 2019 begins.
At 2 a.m. on Sunday, March. 10, 2019, daylight saving time officially begins for most states in the United States. That is the time to set the clock forward one hour. According to the website timeanddate.com, most of the U.S., including Georgia, will maintain this time until 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019, when the time will “fall back” once again to Eastern Standard Time.
In the U.S., Hawaii and most of Arizona are the only two states that do not participate in daylight saving time, but the rest of the country does. Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour later than on Mar 10, 2019, the day before. There will be more light in the evening. Also called Spring Forward, Summer Time, and Daylight Savings Time.
