Spring is almost here but while we wait, let's enjoy the extra hour of sunlight we get on Sunday thanks to Daylight Saving time (DST). Don't forget to move your clocks one hour forward when it begins on March 11 at 2:00 a.m., if they don't do that automatically, that is. So what will you do with that extra hour? We have some ideas.

Spring is almost here but while we wait, let’s enjoy the extra hour of sunlight we get on Sunday thanks to Daylight Saving time (DST). Don’t forget to move your clocks one hour forward when it begins on March 11 at 2:00 a.m. if they don't reset automatically, that is.  So what will you do with that extra hour? We have some ideas.

1. Sit outside and read a book.
