Take Control of the Time Change Weekend
Prepare yourself for all the “spring forward” puns and “I overslept” excuses. This weekend marks the start of Daylight Saving time in most of the country and much of the world.That’s right; Daylight Saving Time isn’t observed everywhere in the United States. Arizona and Hawaii choose not to observe the time change, and neither do Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands. Also, until 2006, only 15 counties in Indiana observed Daylight Saving Time, making a leisurely drive across the state a little more entertaining if not confusing.
Daylight Saving Time has an interesting history involving Benjamin Franklin and a humorous letter suggesting people should wake up earlier. The U.S. first adopted Daylight Saving Time during World War I, and it’s gone through several iterations since.
This Sunday, our clocks unceremoniously jump from 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. with no regard for our hectic lives. With 60 fewer minutes this weekend, there is even less time to tackle that honey-do list that has been building up all week.
Good thing interstatebatteries.com has you covered. Get a jump on your spring forward by ordering the 10-year Ultralife smoke alarm battery, and don’t worry about changing your smoke alarm detectors until 2022. Assuming you replace your battery every six months, which of course you do, this one battery will replace your next 20 9-volts.
Get the 10-year Ultralife smoke alarm battery now, and remember to set your clocks forward before you go to bed Saturday night. That is, unless you’re in Arizona, Hawaii or the U.S. territories. You folks can just go about your normal weekend routine.
