Daylight Savings: Set Clocks Ahead One Hour

March 9, 2014

Alarm clockIt’s time for Bermuda to “spring forward” once again. This year, daylight saving time will begin on Sunday [Mar 9] at 2am, requiring that everyone on the island remembers to set their clocks ahead an hour.

While you’re at it, the Bermuda Fire Service reminds residents to check the batteries on their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms as well.

Daylight saving time is the practice of advancing clocks so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less.

Typically, clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn. Time will fall back to standard time again on Sunday, November 2, 2014, when daylight saving time ends.

    Does anyone know why we do this? Just when it starts to be brighter in the morning and evening we change the hour , it we left it alone we would be the same as US eastern time .we would have more light in the morning and evening

      Its to help with the turnover of employees. LOL

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Oh Really!!! I didn’t know that overnight we somehow magically moved to a more northern latitude giving us more daylight hours.

      How does that happen?

      For those who do, stop moaning about it. Most of us prefer the later sunsets. Makes for more outside time after formal work.

      Be happy that we don’t live way north where it does not get light till mid morning then dark again by mid afternoon then by May it is light till 10 or 11 in the evening then sunrise again by 4:00AM.

      How would you grumble then?
