Tonight’s the night to adjust those clocks. Daylight Saving Time officially arrives at 2 a.m. tomorrow morning, Sunday, March 14. The U.S. has had some form of DST since World War 1. Under DST, we “spring ahead” by moving our clocks up an hour and gain an extra hour of daylight. We lose it in November, when we “fall back” by shifting the clocks back an hour.
An extra hour of daylight. A nice gift this time of year, when the leaves turn different shades of gold and brown and fall from the graceful camphor trees in Burbank. Raking the leaves is a bummer, but I still love the camphors.

When the flowers pop out in bloom and spring is in the air, an extra hour of daylight provides some extra time to enjoy it all. I can go for that.
