Set your clock ahead 1 hour for Daylight Saving Time

MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

First, the daylight hours started getting longer after December 21. Then it was the end of meteorological winter and the beginning of meteorological spring on March first. Now, here comes another milestone in those counting down to brighter days.

This weekend, we "Spring Forward" and we take our sunsets past 7:00 PM for the first time since September 27th.

Yes you will be able to get out and about a bit later in the evening but you will also notice a slightly later sunrise in the mornings. The daylight hours will just keep getting longer and longer and the snow will just keep shrinking and shrinking until a happy medium is met this summer.

The way it works in the spring, this extra hour in the evening is great but when you first make the switch this weekend you will lose an hour of sleep. Also, if you have church or maybe a brunch on Sunday, and you forget to set you clock ahead, then you will be an hour late. Stay time aware.

    It is said that the true test of friendship is how many people come to help out a person in need, and if that's true, one 4H participant from Cambridge, Minn., just found out he has an entire fairground full.
