    Take note:

    Daylight Saving Time changes

    The US and Canadian governments agreed on legislation which goes into effect this year that changes the dates when these countries switch to and away from Daylight Savings Time (DST). DST begins earlier (March 11 instead of April 1) and ends later (November 4 versus October 28) than it has before.


    More caching daylight..Whoo Hoo!!!!


    I was looking at my calendar this afternoon and noticed that the Daylight Savings is listed as being on April 1st....My calandar must have gone into print before this new legislation happened...so if your Calendar says Daylight Savings begins on April 1st...change it to March 11th

    That means it will stay light a hour later,say 7 pm instead of 6 pm.I,m worried that with the extra sun in the warm part of the afternoon it will melt the snow quicker.Right now the melting seems to stop around supper time,but after the time change it won't stop until after well after supper.More caching daylight,but will we have to do it on bare ground?

    Your computer still thinks it will occur on April 1. We will have to go in and change it on the 11th and then again, on April 1st. When your computer says it will happen. Or you can download the new software from Microsoft to change your computers dates. Good Luck! 01012000 again.

    You should be perfectly fine if you get automatic updates from Microsoft though.

    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.
