Daylight saving time begins this Sunday, March 9 and as we turn the clocks forward, we want you to look forward too. What signs of spring are you seeing? Green shoots? What about the birds? What will convince you to pack away the winter woolies? We’re asking for your stories, your sounds and your sights of spring. Your photos that capture the first signs of the season can be sent here to our Facebook page , or by tweeting or instagraming us a photo with the hashtag #MySpringSign. We'll collect your pics and stories, and we’ll celebrate the arrival of spring here at TheTakeaway.org.

It’s that time of year when we spring forward… so don’t forget to set your clocks ahead an hour this Sunday when daylight saving time goes into effect.
And while you’re changing your clocks, the New York Fire Department wants to remind New Yorkers that it is also a good time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.
Lieutenant Anthony Mancusso says smoke detectors are of no use if the batteries are dead.
