Updated: Nov 2, 2019

The twice a year process of moving our clocks forward in the spring and back again in the fall is something that I know many of you get excited about. For sun lovers, it means longer days. For those night owls, it means more time dancing by the pale moonlight. Others like me feel it's time to get rid of this time change. I don't know about you, but it messes with my sleeping patterns for about a week. For the most part, if your tech devices are connected to the Internet, they are equipped to handle switching from Daylight saving and going back to standard time in the fall.
