Daylight saving time begins Sunday

Daylight saving time starts at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 10. Before going to bed late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, set clocks ahead by one hour. Daylight saving time runs until Sunday, Nov. 3.

In Homer, the added hour means that on Saturday, March 9, the sun rises at 7:40 a.m. and sets at 6:54 p.m., and then with the start of daylight saving time on Sunday, the sun rises at 8:38 a.m. and sets at 7:57 p.m. The loss of an hour of daylight in the morning isn’t made up until March 29, when the sun rises at 7:41 a.m. DST.
