Get ready to gain an hour starting tonight. Starting at 2 AM. tonight, actually Sunday Morning, Daylight Savings Time comes to an end. Trying to catch up on sleep? Tonight is the night. Bar hoppin'? Looks like you got an extra hour on your hands. BUT BE SAFE! We will be falling back an hour so don't forget to reset your clocks before hitting the hay.

Are you sick of all of this Daylight Savings stuff? Well, you can blame the Germans! According to Wikipedia,

"The practice has been both praised and criticized. Adding daylight to evenings benefits retailing, sports, and other activities that exploit sunlight after working hours,but can cause problems for evening entertainment and other occupations tied to the sun (such as farming) or to darkness (such as drive-in theatres) Although an early goal of DST was to reduce evening use of incandescent lighting (formerly a primary use of electricity), modern heating and cooling usage patterns differ greatly, and research about how DST currently affects energy use is limited or contradictory."

Enjoy your extra hour Dawgs!
