Daylight Savings Time in the US and Canada: March 8, 2009
Update: ... That's today. Daylight Savings Time began today, March 8, 2009, at 2am in the USA and Canada. If you didn't spring forward, then you might be late, unless you don't have anywhere urgent to be. Which I sort of envy. I want my hour of sleep back.
If you're in the US or Canada and find yourself wondering, "When am I", then check the atomic clock. My iBook automatically updated its clock, but my XP machine did not, nor did my Samsung phone, though it was meant to. I set its alarm ahead an hour just in case. Good thing, too.
The EU and Russia begin Daylight Savings time Sunday, March 29. For a full list of which countries participate in Dalight Savings Time and when they do so, check here.
