Time to Fall Back

clock on the word Fall

Ah, the end of Daylight Savings Time.  Well lit mornings, dark evenings.  For me this always marks the beginning of the holiday season.  I'm going to give it 72 hours before someone has holiday lights up on their house. 

Now, we officially change back to Standard Time on Sunday, November 7, at 2:00am, but I wouldn't rush to set the alarm clock or anything.  Just set your clocks back one hour Saturday evening, so everything is correct the next morning.  For example, if your clock says 10:00pm, you change it to 9:00pm.  Remember, many electronic devices may reset themselves, so check the time before changing it.

Enjoy your extra hour of sleep!
