Unless you enjoy being teased -- or late for your air shift -- remember this SUNDAY, MARCH 13th marks the end of Standard Time and a return to Daylight Saving Time.
The SPRING/FALL time change began during World War I, put into effect to save energy for war production by taking advantage of the later hours of daylight between APRIL and OCTOBER. It was re-instituted during World War II for the same reason. It's now begun four weeks earlier.
Time officially changes at 2a, the hour chosen because it seemed least disruptive to schedules
