What Time Is It Now After Daylight Saving Time 2014?

Did you oversleep or wake up too early?  What time is it?  Below is the current correct clock for Eastern Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Eastern Time zone after the time change this morning.

The time change for Daylight Saving Time 2014 started overnight at 2 a.m this morning. 

If you are asking, "When does daylight saving time begin?"  The answer is the date for Fall 2014 Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins for Florida this Sunday on November 2, 2014.

The rest of the United States also turned their clocks back on Sunday, November 2, 2014 (with the exception of Hawaii and Arizona because those states do not practice Daylight Saving Time.)


A helpful way to remember whether to set our clocks ahead or behind one hour during the daylight savings time is to "Fall Back" and "Spring Ahead." 

This means that we gain (not lose) an hour when we push our clocks back an hour to 1:00 a.m. when our clocks reach 1:59 a.m. on Sunday.  This time change often helps to alleviate the sleep deprivation students are already experiencing before Fall Term exam week.

Daylight Saving Time resumes again on Sunday, March 8, 2015.

Is it "Daylight Savings Time" or "Daylight Saving Time"?  The correct term is without the "s" but the added "s" has become widely used in the United States.
