    Daylight Saving Time Begins
    Don't wait to tell them what you think.

    Good morning. Hopefully you're not late.

    Daylight saving time began at 2 a.m. Sunday.

    As with every time our clocks spring forward an hour, firefighters want to remind you to check their smoke detectors and replace the batteries if necessary.

    Lawn sprinkler systems often need resetting, as do clocks on a variety of household items from microwave ovens to TiVo sets. Many electronic devices, such as laptop computers and cellular telephones, handle the time-change internally.

    The time shift means it will be getting light an hour later in the mornings, and the Auto Club of Southern California warned drivers to be on the lookout for school children and other pedestrians.

    Sunday's sun will set at 6:59 p.m., giving you plenty of daylight to enjoy an evening outside.
