It's almost time to "spring forward" in Woodbury.
By now, Woodbury folks have probably noticed that daylight is beginning a little earlier each morning. That means spring and Daylight Saving Time are near. In 2013, the big shift happens on Sunday, March 10. On that date, most of the U.S. will "spring" clocks forward at 2 a.m. Yes, you'll lose an hour of sleep, but you'll get an extra hour of daylight at the end of the day. And when does it end? DST lasts until Nov. 3, 2013. The change affects all states except Arizona and Hawaii. Of course, some people would prefer that Daylight Saving Time become the norm, that clocks not shift back to standard time in the fall.

These dark mornings are going to get darker. It's time to set your clocks back an hour.
Those 7:30 a.m. commutes will get darker before they get lighter. Officially, Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4. Remember, you’ll “fall back” and set your clocks back one hour, though many electronic devices automatically adjust when Daylight Savings Time begins or ends. When you change your clocks in the fall and spring, it’s also a good time to change smoke detector batteries and check to make sure device are in working order. Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Saving Time. It begins again on March 10, 2013.
