Daylight Savings Time aka How Do I Change The Time On My Car Radio?
Get ready because it's that time of the year again when we look at the radio in our car and wonder how the heck we change the time in order to comply with Daylight Savings Time.
The days have certainly been getting longer which always makes me happy. Darkness at 4:30 in the afternoon pretty much sucks. So I, for one, am super happy that it's Daylight Savings Time again.
According to Timeanddate.com:
March 12, 2017 - Daylight Savings Time starts when local standard time is about to reach Sunday, March 12, 2017, 2:00:00 am clocks are turned forward 1 hour to Sunday, March 12, 2017, 3:00:00 am local daylight time instead. Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour later on Mar 12, 2017 than the day before. There will be more light in the evening.
With smart phones, smart tvs, smart kitchens, Alexa, etc, life has certainly gotten easier with time changes. But, ugh, the car. How the heck do you change the time in the car? You know you did it just last Novemeber but for the life of you, you just can't remember. It's definitely a simple thing, just a button push somewhere and then unlocking the gas cap, saying "Beetlejuice" three times (don't try that at home) and then magically through some divine intervention the time changes.
Or, it can just stay that way until November.
