A Daylight Saving Time Reminder

You'll turn your clocks ahead an hour tonight... unless you're in a few select North American locations.

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona -- Early Sunday morning, you will set your clocks ahead for Daylight Saving time (or do it before you go to sleep Saturday night for the change at 2 a.m. local time).

That is, you will do that if you live in most jurisdictions in the United States and Canada. One of the places in North America that does not go on DST is Arizona. The practical meaning of this for you, and why this is being posted on a baseball site, is this: Cubs spring-training games, which have begun at 2:05 Chicago time up to today, will begin at 3:05 Chicago time starting Sunday (with a few exceptions, noted here). For BCBers in Europe -- and I know we have several -- this won't affect you during spring training, since Europe doesn't go on "summer time" this year until March 30.

* Since you were undoubtedly wondering, the other jurisdictions in the USA and Canada that do not observe DST are Hawaii, Saskatchewan, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the United States Virgin Islands.

Although the clock in the photo on this post looks like it might be embedded in the ivy outfield wall at Wrigley Field, obviously, it isn't. 100 BCB points to the first poster in the comments who can identify the correct location of this clock.
