Time to Spring Forward: Daylight Saving Time Takes Effect 2:00 a.m. Sunday, March 9

DST2104WASHINGTON — Even with the harsh winter of 2014 lingering in some cold weather and snowy conditions, it is time to “spring forward” with daylight saving time in most places across the United States.

You will lose an hour of sleep because the time changes from 2:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. overnight on Sunday, March 9, 2014.

Most states comply with daylight saving time change. The state of Arizona does not comply with the time change, except for the Navajo Indian Reservation where a large portion of it is situated in Arizona. The other state that does not comply with daylight saving time is Hawaii.

With the advent of technology, such as computers, smart phones, and tablets, many clocks will self-adjust to daylight saving time at 2:00 a.m. However, other clocks and watches will still need to be changed.

The time will fall back to standard time at 2:00 a.m., November 2, 2014 when you can regain the hour of sleep you lose overnight.
