Daylight Saving Time begins

Reset clocks overnight Saturday

March 11, 2012 7:09:02 AM PDT
If you forgot to turn your clock ahead one hour, Daylight Saving Time began at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Don't bemoan one night of 60 fewer minutes of sleep; there's the promise of many months ahead with an extra hour of evening sunlight.

Not every place makes the switch. The exceptions are Hawaii, most of Arizona (Navajo Indian territories do observe the change), Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.

This is also a great time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors or if necessary replace it.

Standard time returns Nov. 4.
