Spring Forward - Daylight Savings Time

March 12, 2023, at 2 am the clocks will spring forward one hour.

Port Arthur, Ontario, Canada was the first city in the world to enact DST or daylight savings time on 1 July 1908.  This was followed by Orillia, Ontario and it became commonplace around the world from around April 1916 as a way to conserve coal during wartime.  Most countries abandoned DST in the years following the end of the war except Canada, The United Kingdom, France, Ireland, and the United States.  In the 1970's it was re-enacted again during the energy crisis.

I was curious about what countries still follow DST and many no longer do.  There was talk about doing away with it in the United States too but the bill did not pass.  So, clocks will continue to spring forward on the second Sunday in March and will end or fall back on the first Sunday in November for some time yet.

It’s interesting that the last few years I’ve had the bill in congress to keep daylight savings time one way or the other just so we never have to keep changing it back-and-forth. And I get that

Good morning June. My vote is to do away with the process. Never really made sense to me in the modern era. Enjoy your day.

Good morning June,

Well I'm up and never felt the time change as I set my clocks forward before I went to bed! I'm looking forward to some more light at the end of the day!

Hello June,  I hate to loose a hour of sleep but glad it is lighter at night and will spend more time outside now.
