Does it feel too early in the year? It is...
Coloradans will spring forward Sunday morning, when 2 a.m. suddenly becomes 3 a.m. and daylight-saving time rules the clocks.
Sunday evening's sunset will be an hour later, at 7:01 p.m., and daylight should linger another half-hour or so after that.
But Monday morning, when most people return to work or school, it will look extra dark.
Some cell phones and computers will move forward an hour automatically early Sunday morning, but the rest of the clocks in the home, office or car will have to be changed by hand.
The shift to daylight-saving time also serves as a reminder to install new batteries in warning devices like smoke detectors.
Two states, Arizona and Hawaii, don't observe daylight time.
Starting in 2007, daylight-saving time was moved from the first week in April to the second week in March, with the hope that the extra three weeks of extended sunlight in the early evenings would help reduce the nation's energy budget.
