Daylight saving time took effect at 2 a.m. Sunday. Did you remember to set your clocks and watches ahead one hour?

The government expanded daylight saving time in 2007 in an effort to save energy. It now begins on the second Sunday in March and continues until the first Sunday in November, ending this year on November 2nd.

This is also a good time to check/replace batteries in warning devices such as smoke detectors and hazard warning radios.

The time change is not observed by Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.
