Spring Forward

Daylight savings time returns this weekend.

The short-term pain: Lose an hour of sleep Saturday night.

The long-term gain: Enjoy more evening light in the months ahead, when the weather warms and you want to be outdoors.

Advance your clocks by 1 hour before tucking in, so you're not caught off guard Sunday morning. For most of the U.S., the change officially starts Sunday at 2a.m. local time.

You my want to install fresh batteries in smoke detectors and radios, and repeat that when standard time returns Nov. 5.

No time change is observed in Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas.
