March brings the most rapid gain of daylight of the year

There has been a string of bad weather impacting our area recently. And, a lot of weather displeasure is being expressed on social media. To help a little, I thought I would take a few minutes to give everyone some good news…

Spring is coming. And, while we really don’t notice it much, our days are getting longer. Saturday (Feb 23) will mark our first 11-hours of daylight day this season. March will bring around 3 additional minutes of daylight each day making it THE month of most rapid daylight gain of the year. On March 17, we will have gained another full hour of daylight making for 12 hours of daylight.

Note also that two weeks from this Sunday (on March 10) we switch back to Daylight Saving Time. Sunsets will be after 7:30 PM and only get later.

C’mon Spring!
