Set Clocks Ahead One Hour

4:34AM ON 03/09/2013
BY Beth Comery

clock Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday at 2am — set your clocks ahead one hour. Learn more about the DST Rules at the National Institute of Standards and Technology Physical Measurement Laboratory. For instance;

Today, most of the country and its territories observe DST. However, DST is not observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the state of Arizona (with the exception of the Navajo Indian Reservation, which does observe DST).

The rest of those places are islands and it doesn’t matter, but you know Arizona’s just being a dick about it.

Seen here is the clock at the RISD Fleet Library. (A link on the homepage leads to a RISD Library Harlem Shake video.  Jeez, this is the ebola of viral video fads.) Read more about the library at the Brown Daily Herald.
