Fall Back Those Clocks

By October 31, 2009

Follow me on:

Daylight saving time finally grinds to an end and clocks should be set back one hour on Sunday morning at 2:00 a.m. local time, except in Hawaii, parts of Arizona, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, where daylight saving time is not observed.

Intended to save electricity, thus reducing our need for foreign oil, extended daylight saving time begins in the U.S. on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

Enjoy your extra hour of sleep Sunday morning.
