Ready or not, it's time to "spring forward."

Daylight Saving Time is upon us once again, and depending on who you talk to, this may or may not be a good thing.

Those who get up early on Sundays bemoan the hour of sleep stolen from them, while outdoor enthusiasts are excited for the extra hour of daylight in the evenings.

At 2 a.m. Sunday, the clock will move forward to 3 a.m., effectively "losing" an hour. Most people 11 News spoke with say they rely on their phones to automatically switch over, while some try to set their clocks before going to bed.

Then it'll be a longer evening, with the sun setting an hour later Sunday than it did Saturday.

Days will gradually grow longer from there through the summer solstice.
