Hopefully you remember to set your clocks ahead one hour. Losing an hour of sleep sucks!

I'll assume you already know the basic origins rational behind DST, so I'm not going to talk about that. In 2007 the US decided to extend the period generally used for DST by 4 weeks. Pushing up the start to the second weekend in March and prolonging it until the 1st weekend in November. This is a result of the "Energy Policy Act of 2005" that Bushy Bush signed. Supposedly this extension saves 100,000 barrels of oil a day and of course saves electricity by needing to turn on lights later in the day. But the change causes issues with computer systems & electronics that haven't been patched (was a PITA last year).

Guess we'll be waking up in the dark for a while...
