Daylight Saving Time

Today (March 11, 2018) is when clocks “spring forward” because of Daylight Saving Time (DST).  You lose an hour of sleep technically as clocks advance forward an hour for the next 8 months.  Marketplace Weekend had a short segment titled “5 Things You Need To Know About daylight Saving Time.” It’s fascinating to listen to.

I learned one thing though.  Apparently the myth of how DST benefits farmers is an actual myth perpetuated by the Chamber of Commerce to benefit the sales.  Who knew!?
