Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time

Set your Clocks 1 Hour Ahead this Sunday!

Daylight Saving Time is also called “summer time”. It is a way to artificially expand the daylight hours.

Clocks are set forward one hour on March 13th (Sunday) at 2:00 A.M. and are set back one hour on November 6th (Sunday). So for example, if it is 2:00 A.M. now, it should be changed to 3:00 A.M.

It is easy to remember: Spring forward (add 1 hour), Fall back (deduct 1 hour)!

Reminder – ISS is open late until 6pm every Wednesday!
