Fall Back: Daylight Saving Time Ends This Sunday Morning
2:00 AM this Sunday morning marks the end of Daylight Saving Time. Either Saturday night before you go to bed, or Sunday morning when you get up; remember to set your clocks back one hour (or be really early everywhere you go Sunday).
If you don't want to bother with it, you'll be back in sync with the rest of us when we spring forward on March 12th.
It's also the annual reminder to change the batteries in your smoke and CO2 detectors. Be safe!
In addition to the whole time change thing, there's a total lunar eclipse next week, and Tuesday is Election Day. What could go wrong? 😉
Will This Time Change Ever End?
Many of us have been wondering for the past year or so whether or not this whole time change deal is even necessary. Time and again Americans say that they hate springing forward and falling back. There are even some health concerns related to the twice-a-year changes.
Some states have already put an end to it -- places like Indiana, Arizona, and Hawaii. For any state to opt out of the time change, the United States congress must approve after the state legislators already have. Good luck with all that.
There is legislation in Washington D.C to stay on Daylight Saving Time permanently in all fifty states, but it has been put on the back burner for the time being.
So for now, fall back my friend. If you don't you'll wonder why you're an hour early to everything for the next four months.
