Sunday is the day to change clocks and smoke detector batteries

Don't forget to get up early and set your clocks ahead at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 13, or even better, set them ahead on Saturday night. And while you are at it, change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.

For Daylight Saving Time, the clocks are turned forward an hour in the spring and set back an hour in the fall. The effect is to shift the day an hour for more daylight. For 2011, Daylight Saving Time begins the second Sunday in March and ends the first Sunday in November.
