WASHINGTON – America is springing forward.

Most Americans trade an hour's sleep this weekend for more evening sunshine to enjoy after work.

Officially the change to daylight saving time occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, local time, though most folks set their clocks and watches ahead an hour before going to bed on Saturday.

In areas that observe the change, clocks fall back when standard time returns Nov. 7.

Thanks for the heads up, I always forget about daylight savings time. I'm not looking forward to spring this year, but it's the typical time period where we get to fight spring floods where I live. Oh well, at least my city is protected a lot better than Fargo, ND, I hope they are prepared since the water is projected to be higher than last spring.

Very true, some parts of the country, springtime is trouble with floods or tornados. Floods are something we never see in California, at least not like the big rivers in your part of the country. Ourf biggest tornado never would come close to a catagory 1. They are very rare, and very weak in magnatude.

We do have problems when the big rains come all at once and our burned areas are subject to mudslides. We have a vicious cycle in California. Rain makes everything green right now, it grows and drys out during our hot summers, and is perfect fuel for fires by the fall when we get Santa Ana wind conditions. Fires burn everything out, and no vegetation on the hills when the rain comes. Its a never ending thing we live with. Then we live with earthquakes and droughts which are ongoing.

I'm setting my alarm clock for 2am Sunday morning so I can get up and turn my clocks ahead an hour.
