USA Goes DST!

Time adjustment!

This week’s publishing schedule is Sunday and Thursday.

Today, Sunday, March 13, 2022, we advance our clocks, time-pieces and watches one full hour. Daylight Savings Time (DST) officially returns at precisely 2:00 a.m. The adjustments guarantee that the change-over hour is immediately followed by 3:01 a.m.

DST was inaugurated primarily as a cost-saving measure by industry during World War II. In theory, it offered longer daylight and reduced energy consumption during peak production demands of the war effort. Given the patriotic fervor of the time, both laborers and manufacturers responded favorably.

Workers and their families quickly adapted to the “extra” daylight this provision provided. It became so popular that after the war, the shift in time was continued during the summer season. Federal legislation extended the observed time period from just the months of summer to the middle of March through the beginning of November, annually.

Enjoy the longer days of sunlight!

Take care and stay bare!
