Time To “Spring Forward” (DST)

It is literally time to “spring forward” this weekend! Who doesn’t love losing an hour of sleep!?

Anyway here is a friendly reminder from your friends at the best insurance agency in New Jersey!  On Sunday, March 11th at 2AM make sure to turn your clock one hour ahead! It will be like going into the future defying time and space but not really. Plus you don’t want to be late for work Monday – you’re welcome.

Since we are losing an hour, us 9-5er’s will see the sun again on our commute home from work! Oh sun how I’ve missed you – the weekend relationship we’ve been having is just not cutting it. Why do we turn back the clocks anyway? Well one of the biggest reasons we change our clocks is because it saves electricity. A good percentage of energy consumed by lighting and appliances occurs in the evening when families are home. By moving the clock ahead one hour, we can cut the amount of electricity we consume each day. There is more light during the day, so there should be less of a need for electricity.

How will you be spending the extra daylight? Taking the pleasure car for a joy ride on a beautiful spring afternoon? Or ride off into the sunset like a cowboy on your motorcycle? However you spend it make sure you are covered with the best insurance agency in New Jersey!
