Travelers, Check Your Watches
Daylight Saving Time hits us with an extra hour of sunlight early this year: This Sunday (March 11) at 2 a.m., we spring ahead one hour. Oh what a lovely euphemism for losing an hour of precious sleep on a weekend! So if you're flying from the States this weekend, don't forget to change your clocks and alarms on Saturday evening, and if you're being picked up on the other end, make sure your designated picker-upper updates his or her watch. (Hawaii, Arizona, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa don't observe DST so they get to ignore this).
And if you're flying overseas? In the U.K. and Northern Ireland, for example, it's called British Summer Time (BST), and in 2007 it goes into effect on March 25 at 1 a.m.; member countries of the European Union don't call it BST but follow the same change date.
To make sure your watch is in sync with the time at your destination -- or to figure out the best time to call someone abroad -- check out this World Clock.
