WEST MICHIGAN —  A lot of people have asked me recently “When do we set the clocks forward?”  That’s coming up pretty quickly, and is actually two weeks from today!


This year’s entrance to Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, Mar 12th at 2 AM.  Many people won’t feel this transition too much, but you may notice it on Monday morning as it’s darker earlier, with the sun staying out much later in the day.


We’re already gaining 3 minutes of daylight as we march toward the first day of spring (no pun intended.)  Are you looking forward to the switch?

    I like the extra daylight, at least in Spring and early Fall, but I think we can live without it. The original impetus for DST – to save energy by reducing the amount of time people have their lights on in the evening – has been rendered largely moot by the dramatically greater efficiency of modern light bulbs.
