Curtain Fading Time Again – Daylight Savings Is BACK!
It’s the time of year that Queenslander’s dread (sorry) when us southerners adjust our clocks and have an extra hour of daylight up our sleeves.
And to make it worse (for them), it’s starting earlier and finishing later than ever before!
In the ACT, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, daylight savings begins this coming weekend, at 2.00am EST on Sunday October 5th. And this time, it goes right through to 3.00am on Sunday 5 April 2009.
In Western Australia, they begin their 3rd and final “trial” year of daylight savings on 26th October, and it ends for them at 3.00am on Sunday 29th March 2009.
If, like me, you have difficulty remembering whether the clocks go forward or back, then just remember this little gem!
Spring forward… (clocks go forward)
Fall (as in Autumn) back. (clocks go back)
And you’ll never be lost for time again!
That is… unless you live in Queensland or the Northern Territory… but you guys get enough sun up there, so you really don’t want any more!!!
