Bellevue springs forward--time change tonight

See also

Blame World War One for the fact that Bellevue residents and the rest of the country will lose an hour's sleep during the wee hours of Mar. 9 as Tennessee and the rest of the country springs forward for the time change.

The United States adopted Daylight Savings Time (DST) in 1918 as a way to conserve coal and energy during wartime. It was discontinued after the war but brought back by President Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War II in 1945. DST has come and gone since then but in the 1970s it became somewhat permanent as an energy conservation method. However, not all states observe Daylight Saving Time including Arizona and Hawaii.

Although the official time change to DST is at 2 a.m., it is important to set your watches and clocks an hour ahead before you go to sleep tonight. So, if you are going to see the Mark Sorrell's Trio at Whitfield's tonight, be sure to set your clocks forward when you get home! On Sunday, Nov. 3, 2014, we will set our clocks back again.
