Tonight’s the night to move your clocks forward an hour before you go to bed. It’s also the time to replace all your smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector batteries.
The federal law that established “daylight time” in the United States does not require any area to observe daylight saving time. But if a state chooses to observe DST, it must follow the starting and ending dates set by the law. From 1986 to 2006 this was the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October, but starting in 2007, it is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November, adding about a month to daylight saving time.
Enjoy the extra sunlight at night DeKalb County folks!
