Daylight Savings Time Begins: March 12, 2017

Turn your clocks ahead an hour on March 12, 2017 for the beginning  of Daylight Savings Time.   This is also a good time to change your batteries in your smoke detectors. 

To remember which way to set your watch, keep in mind “spring forward, fall back”. You set your clock back in the fall when DST ends (= regain one hour) and ahead in the spring when DST begins (= lose one hour).
