Today is your friendly reminder that Daylight Saving Time will begin Sunday morning at 2:00 a.m.

That means it's time to move that clock hand forward.

And even though we loose an hour, we can spend that time in the sunlight in the evening.

This Daylight Saving is a special one because this year will be the 100th anniversary of the solstice practice. The tradition started back in 1918 as a way to preserve coal during World War I.
