■ Which type of clock is the most difficult to change for daylight saving time? A sundial. What happens when you try to advance a clock? It is ticked. Most modern clocks update automatically when DST starts/ends. This morning I walk around my house thinking wow, times have changed. I don’t understand the reasoning behind DST in the US, I guess I’m still in the dark. Advance your clocks on Saturday night.
