As you set your microwaves oven and vehicle clocks ahead one hour this weekend, the sun-worshiping senators of the Sunshine State are hoping Sunday morning is the last time Floridians must spring forward for daylight saving time.
The next time the clocks move forward, Carrier recommends preparing yourself several days in advance by going to bed and waking up a little earlier each day before Daylight Saving Time.
By the next year, the war had ended, and many thought daylight saving time should end with it, Prerau says. Whether it's losing an hour of sleep (spring forward) or earlier sunsets (fall back), we're just never happy, right? Certainly the time change can disrupt our sleep cycles, particularly in the spring, research shows.
Digital devices will automatically shift forward from 2am to 3am, however some may still need to change the dial on their manual clocks.

A set time zone could be in the works for the West Coast.

The idea started in Germany during World War I and began, sometimes haphazardly, being adopted in the US circa 1966 - 53 years ago.
No time change is observed in Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas. "Reflecting the will of the State of Florida, I'm proud to reintroduce this bill to make Daylight Saving Time permanent nationally", Rubio said in a statement. The most common concern raised involved the safety of schoolchildren, more of whom would go to school in the morning in the dark during winter if states maintain daylight saving time year-round.
The Sarasota Republican sponsored the legislation in the House, along with U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, a Punta Gorda Republican.
