Spring Forward!

14 03 2010

Daylight Saving Time is here once again, meaning we changed the time on the clock today to be one hour ahead. But do you know why?

Originally Daylight Saving Time was created to help save energy. When we set our clocks forward an hour like today, we have more hours of sunlight during the day.  With more sunlight, we don’t have to use as many lights in our houses

and buildings, saving energy.

Daylight Saving Time also affects farming and flying since both rely on sunlight.

Don’t forget, today is the Zilker Park Kite Festival, too! What a great way to take advantage of extra sunlight.

What will you do now since there is more time to spend in the daylight?
