That's when you will get your lost hour of sleep back from the spring time change.

Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to Standard Time on the first Sunday in November.

In a sleep deprived nation, we're about to lose a little more this weekend thanks to the arrival of Daylight Saving Time.

Did you know? Daylight saving time was first used during World War I, as part of an effort in the United States and other warring countries to conserve fuel. However, it was nixed later that year but it persisted in some form at local or state levels for 48 years before being officially recognized again nationally in 1966 by the Uniform Time Act.

Hawaii, most of Arizona, and a handful of USA territories - including American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands - do not observe Daylight Saving Time.

The Senate voted 33-2 to give final approval to a measure (HB 1013) meant to eventually keep Florida on daylight-saving time throughout the year.

Opinions about Daylight Savings Time differ state-by-state.

It took the state Senate less than a minute Tuesday to pass the "Sunshine Protection Act". It now heads to the desk of Governor Rick Scott, the Miami Herald reports.
