Yes, you lose an hour Saturday night and yes, it sucks.

It's Daylight Saving Time again everybody.

Consider this GoMN's submission to the glut of "Hey, it's Daylight Saving Time" articles that appear this time every March.

We're not going to tell you about the "history of springing forward, falling back" and why there's no "s" on "saving."

Here's what you need to know:

Yes, the clocks go back at 2 a.m. Sunday in Minnesota.

Yes, it sucks because we lose an hour of sleep.

Yes, it sucks because it stays darker for longer in the morning.

But yay! It's lighter in the evenings for longer.

Plus it's the symbolic start of our weather not sucking so much for the next eight months.

There you have it, all you need to know.
