Spring Ahead This Weekend

Don’t forget to turn your clocks AHEAD one hour early Sunday, March 11th to begin Daylight Saving Time.

The bad news: you’re going to lose one hour of sleep.

The good news: the sun will set one hour later, so if the weather cooperates, you can enjoy some time outdoors.

When did Daily Savings Time start?
Germany first thought of DST to conserve electricity during World War I, but America didn’t have a formal DST policy until 1996. However, Hawaii and Arizona never embraced the concept because they’re both blessed with warm weather and having an extra hour of sunlight at night would only make you use MORE energy for air conditioning and the like.

What Can You Do With One More Hour of Sunlight in March?
Take a walk. Ride a bike. Have a picnic. Watch the sun set. And if you have visible varicose veins, call Northern Illinois Vein Clinic in Rockford, Illinois. Dr. Rimas Gilvydis, one of the Midwest’s most experienced vein doctors, can examine your legs at a free vein screening on Tuesday, March 20 from 8:00 am – 4 pm. The clinic is located in Perryville Place at 2990 N. Perryville Rd., Suite 3400,
Rockford, IL 61107.

If he determines that you have venous insufficiency (vein disease), he’ll recommend a customized treatment plan with a minimally invasive laser vein procedure that’s quick, has little to no downtime, and is covered by most insurance plans.
