Syracuse, N.Y. — On the first day of March, we begin asking ourselves: once do we have to re-set our clocks again? And when do i get back my lost hour of sleep?
We have some answers.
When? daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 11. that is when you will move your clocks ahead an hour, to 3 a.m.
You’ll lose an hour of sleep when we spring forward, which can be unhealthy for your health. a new European country Journal of medicine study found that heart attacks increased for the 3 days following the switch to DST in the spring.
Why? that is the big question, isn’t it? The U.S. Department of Transportation, which oversees time zones and daylight saving time, says that daylight saving time saves energy, reduces traffic fatalities, and reduces crime. the current DST configuration — second Sunday in March to first Sunday in November — was established in the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
Why is it called “saving?” Another smart question. After all, daylight saving time simply shifts daylight. On Saturday, March 10, sunset in Syracuse will be 6:04 p.m. On Sunday, it’ll be 7:06 p.m.
Morning people lose out, though. Sunrise moves from 6:25 a.m. on Saturday to 7:23 a.m. on Sunday.
When do i get my hour of sleep back? daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. Nov. 4.
