Washington, DC (IPP) - The US Naval Observatory (USNO) has made some substantial changes to the Daylight Savings Time requirements this year. The new change in the rules have created a more comprehensive set of rules for citizens to follow.
The most significant change requires springing forward six hours instead of the usual one hour change. The USNO has distributed the changes over a six week period. Each Sunday the clock has to be set an hour later for six consecutive weeks.
The time allowed for the changes was designed to help the public cope with the significant impact that the new rules will have on their biological clocks.
Six A.M. will become 12:00 noon by the time all of the time changes are in effect. This will allow people to sleep in and everyone should be well rested by the time October rolls around when the changes go into effect in the opposite manner.
The USNO has a famous old saying that states: A man with a watch always knows what time it is but a man with two watches is never sure.
