Clocks move forward one hour overnight

The annual ritual of adjusting those home timepieces that don't adjust themselves is upon us, as we move into Daylight Saving Time at 2 AM.

The timely reminder and rule  of thumb to remember is "Spring Forward, Fall Back"  which of course means we lose that hour of valuable sleep overnight.  Though coming a few weeks before the actual arrival of spring probably means we need a new slogan...

Circle November 1st on your calendar for when you can reclaim the missing sixty minutes of slumber.

While you prepare to move those hands of time forward, a little background information for the task at hand
