Remember to Spring forward

BBC News - US time switch set to save energy
The US is switching to daylight saving time, or summer time, three weeks earlier than usual to cut fuel consumption and help the environment.

At 0200 EST (0700 GMT) clocks will move forward by an hour, shifting an hour of daylight from morning to evening.
Not that I really needed the BBC to tell me that I needed to change my clock, but I thought I'd link to the article anyway. I did find this paragraph interesting:
"Not only will Americans have more daylight at their disposal for four additional weeks in the year, but we will also see wide energy saving, less crime, fewer traffic fatalities, more recreation time and increased economic activity.
Who knew?
