Daylight Savings Time Begins March 13, 2016

submitted 281 days ago by CouponNut in "Member's Lounge"
The days are getting longer and this year on March 13th, we Spring forward to gain an hour of daylight. Getting an extra hour of daylight is always good! We can start cultivating our gardens and trees begin to bud & blossom. Daylight savings time officially begin the second Sunday in March, and officially ends the first Sunday in November. The year DST ends on November 6th.

Daylight Savings Time dates back to World War I with inconsistencies on time change until 1974 which President Nixon signed a law for Emergency Daylight Savings Time to save energy. Today, with the global warming and climate changes every year, many states are looking to do away for DST. The global warming is having a huge impact on our agriculture and farming operations.

States and territories in the United States that do not observe daylight saving time, aside from most of Arizona, include: Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Some parts of Indiana did not observe daylight saving time in the past.
