It’s that time, folks. In case you haven’t heard, it’s time to change the clocks again. Daylight Saving Time (DST), sometimes incorrectly referred to as Daylight Savings Time, is coming to an end. The annual event officially ends on the first Sunday in November at 2:00 a.m. local time. This year’s event will occur on Nov. 1, 2015.
Each fall, many people across of the nation will move the clocks back an hour while every spring, the clocks are moved one hour ahead. And just in case you have trouble remembering which direction to move the clocks, a little ditty from long ago may help you remember – “Spring Forward, Fall Back. It’s time to turn our clocks and time-pieces back one hour.
Although some Americans look forward to the annual occasion, others do not. Adjusting all the clocks in the house, car and office as well as all those handy dandy gadgets can be a bit of an inconvenience. But it’s important to remember that moving the clocks back an hour does have a silver lining. We get one extra hour of sleep which is always a good thing, right? And while you are adjusting all the clocks,it’s time to change the batteries on the smoke detectors and other life-saving devices in your home and office as well. Remembering to change those batteries could save your life.
As we say goodbye to another busy summer season, warmer weather and longer days, cooler weather, snow, ice and shorter days are on the way whether we are ready or not. But just think – it’ll be no time at all before we have to change all the clocks again! We move the clocks ahead an houron the first Sunday in March. But for now, enjoy that extra hour of shut-eye.
