Get Ready to "Spring Forward" Verona/Cedar Grove: Daylight Saving Time Starts Sunday

VERONA/CEDAR GROVE, NJ – What time is it? Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday morning, and if you don't move your clock an hour ahead, you will be an hour late.

 Among the states, only Hawaii and much of Arizona will keep their clocks set to Standard Time. Most of Europe won't begin what it calls "Summer Time" until March 30.  Daylight Saving Time is not observed  in Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona changes its clocks with the rest of the continental U.S.

If you feel the time change seems to be coming earlier now,  you're not wrong. For years, the day to "spring forward" was the first Sunday in April; it was changed in 2007 to the second Sunday in March which in turn extended Daylight Saving Time an extra week into November.

This year, Daylight Saving Time ends on Nov. 5.

The Department of Energy says Germany became the first nation to use Daylight Saving Time in 1916, to save resources during World War I. The U.S. soon followed suit, but the country didn't adopt a standard until 1966.

Many of us are tied to devices that will automatically reflect the time change but walk through every room of the house and do a visual sweep of clocks, and change them as needed.

Don't forget the clock in the cars.

Fire officials remind everyone to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. If they are older than five years it is time to change the entire detector. 

This weekend is also a good time to vacuum out your dryer vents to prevent the risk of fire there.
