Spring Has Sprung

With the weather we’ve had this week, it may be hard to believe that spring is actually here. But it’s true! Tuesday, March 20th, was the day of the spring equinox. This means that both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres experienced an equal amount of daylight. For those that live in the Northern Hemisphere, this day marks the first day of the spring season. For those that live in the Southern Hemisphere, this marks the first day of fall. O’Donnell Law Center has some information regarding the spring equinox.
The Amount of Daylight on Tuesday Equinox means “equal night”. During the equinox, most places on Earth will see an equal day and an equal night. 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. Not every place will see the same amount of daylight. The difference in daylight depends on how the sunlight gets refracted as it enters Earth’s atmosphere at different latitudes. The first day of spring is the only time of year when the sun rises in the east and sets in the west for every…

Get Ready To Spring Forward

Sunday is Daylight Saving Time and our clocks will spring forward by an hour. With less than two weeks left until spring and Daylight Saving Time happening this Sunday, we can look forward to more sunlight and longer days, but we will lose an hour of sleep. With so many questions that surround Daylight Saving Time, here at O’Donnell Law Center, we thought it would be fun to dedicate this week’s blog to this mysterious time change.

What is Daylight Saving Time?We call it “daylight saving time” or even “spring forward”. Most people set their clocks forward an hour before they go to bed Saturday night, but Daylight Saving Time takes place at 2:00 am on Sunday, March 11. Luckily, smart devices like cell phones will automatically change the time. However, don’t forget to change manual clocks.
