Spring Forward

Dave LeMote uses an allen wrench to adjust hands on a stainless steel tower clock at Electric Time Company, Inc. in Medfield, Mass., earlier today. Most Americans will set their clocks 60 minutes forward before heading to bed Saturday night, but daylight saving time officially starts Sunday at 2 a.m. local time (0700GMT).

DFO: I consider the return to daylight-saving time as the second step toward spring -- 1. Groundhog's Day, 2. Daylight-Saving Time, and 3. Easter. My three steps toward winter are: Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I don't look at the calendar in either instance.

Question: Which sign do you consider to be the first one of spring?
