In Aug. 2005, Congress passed an energy bill that included extending Daylight Saving Time by about a month. As of 2007, DST starts the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November.
Most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November.
Arizona (with the exception of the Navajo Nation) and Hawaii and the territories of Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa are the only places in the U.S. that do not observe DST but instead stay on "standard time" all year long.
(And if you've spent any time in the sweltering summer sun in those regions you can understand why residents don't need another hour of sunlight.)
Many fire departments encourage people to change the batteries in their smoke detectors when they change their clocks because Daylight Saving Time provides a convenient reminder. "A working smoke detector more than doubles a person's chances of surviving a home fire". More than 90 percent of homes in the United States have smoke detectors, but one-third are estimated to have dead or missing batteries.
Have a wonderful safe weekend and give me a call! I look forward to hearing from you and am at your service when you are ready to make a move. Interest rates are near 40 year lows and now would be a great time to "Spring" into action!
