Daylight savings time returns

This weekend, we lose an hour of sleep as the U.S. returns to daylight savings time. Under provisions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the federal government declared that the Uniform Time Act set the start and end dates of daylight savings time to begin the 2nd Sunday in March, end on the 1st Sunday in November.

It’s part of a concept designed to conserve electricity which theoretically conserves 300-thousand barrels of oil a year. Here in Wyoming, there is a desire to have the practice ended – with a bill introduced in this year’s legislative session to move the state permanently to Mountain Standard Time; but the House defeated that bill.

So set those clocks ahead one hour once again before you go to bed Saturday night, and be ready to use your headlights just a little longer when you go to work Monday morning.
