... Daylight saving time arriving...

The sunshine this week has many thinking of Spring. Another sign of
Spring is the transition to Pacific saving daylight time that
resumes again this coming Sunday - March 8th. It seems like we just
switched to Standard time not long ago. In fact... we did so shortly
after Halloween back on November 2nd - just 18 weeks ago.

Early Sunday morning at 2 am... we move our clocks ahead one hour.
The easy phrase to remember is - Spring ahead. On the first Sunday
in November... we will - fall back - to Standard time again.

In partnership with western Washington fire departments... the change
to daylight saving time is a great opportunity to remember to
replace batteries in home smoke detectors. National statistics show
that more than 90 percent of homes have smoke detectors... yet about
one third had dead or missing batteries. Working smoke detectors
more than double the chance of a person surviving a house fire.

In addition... it is also a good time to change batteries in your
NOAA Weather Radio all-hazards receiver. NOAA Weather Radio is
washingtons all-hazards warning system. For more information about
NOAA Weather Radio all-hazard receivers including where to get one
for your home... business... school or vehicle... visit

The change to daylight time is also a good time to check your Carbon
monoxide (co) detectors batteries. Co is called the - invisible
killer - since it is a colorless... odorless poisonous gas. More than
150 people in the U.S. Die each year from co poisoning from sources
such as poorly ventilated generators or poorly functioning
stoves... furnaces and water heaters.

The earths rotation around the sun has moved to the point that we
are gaining about 3 to 4 minutes of daylight each day right now. So
sunrises are earlier and sunsets are later. With the resumption of
daylight saving time... we will have daylight well into the evening
while sunrise will be pushed ahead an hour for darker morning
commutes. Yet as each day gets longer through to the Summer solstice
in June... it will only take about a month before sunrise matches
that of the change to daylight saving time.

So remember this weekend to - Spring ahead - one hour!
