When we turn our clocks forward an hour at 2 a.m. Sunday, some people will rejoice at the lengthened daylight hours. Others will grumble that they must adjust their timepieces, their body clocks, or rise in the dark rather than with the dawn.
This year, daylight-saving time comes earlier on the calendar than last year — by two days. And, it’s a full month earlier than in years past, because of the 2005 Energy Policy Act, which extended it by about a month.
Most people prefer maximizing the daylight, at least during spring and summer months. In a 1999 Gallup poll, 72 percent of respondents said they favor daylight-saving time.
Note: The Insite won’t have to make that adjustment with my new Atomic clock!
