Daylight Savings Time

Even though it feels like we just started the era of seasonal depression and prepared for the harsh chill and snow-filled thrill of winter not too long ago, this weekend, that all comes to an end.

Because, as highlighted before, this Saturday night/into Sunday morning, at 2a (technically on Sunday, March 10), we time-travel ahead an hour and go right to 3a, triggering the beginning of Daylight Savings Time, taking one step closer to tourist season, and prepping to live our best Northern New England spring and summer lives.

And, while that's upsetting to some New Englanders who look forward snowy mountain activities like skiing, boarding, snowmobiling, sledding, snowball fights and more, the rest are salivating over the thought of having sunlight later into the day, cookouts, beach sessions, sunkissed skin and more.

It's already time to gear up for another season of pup cups, fro-yo, soft serve, homemade ice cream cookie sandwiches, and more, starting this Saturday, March 9!

And, honestly, a Mainer named Dan Sonenberg may have said it best for all of us when commenting on the Facebook post of Lib's announcement of their season opening date:
