Don't forget to move clocks ahead an hour this weekend

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The annual ritual of moving clocks an hour ahead happens this weekend when daylight-saving time begins.

The official changeover occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, though most people will likely adjust their clocks and watches before going to bed Saturday.Those who forget to spring forward could be late for church, work or other events.

Daylight-saving time lasts until Oct. 29.

Safety officials say this is also a good time to install fresh batteries in smoke detectors.
