Did you know……?

Daylight savings time will begin on Saturday March 13th at 2:00 am. You probably know this already – but what you may know is not every US state participates in DST, Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe DST – They follow “standard time”.

Also before 2005 Indiana didn’t observe DST – since the state is divided between two time zones – some of the state’s counties observed DST while others did not – That had to be confusing! But, it's actually a choice the state can make.

However congress did pass a bill that if a state chooses to observe DST – then the state must follow the beginning and ending set dates – which is the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November. This too was changed by congress in 2005 to conserve energy – prior to 2005, DST began on the first Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October.
