Daylight Saving Time Ends This Weekend (Nov. 7)
It's that time again when Daylight Saving Time comes to an end this weekend. Please remember to set all your clocks back one hour before bedtime Saturday night, Nov. 6.
You know what this means for everyone? We all get an extra hour of sleep this weekend. And the sun will rise about an hour earlier each morning.
I guess that's the payoff with Daylight Saving Time ending. More sleep, more light in the morning, and darker during the evening hours.
Let's break this down courtesy of almanac.com:
Daylight saving Time (DST) is the practice of moving the clocks forward one hour from Standard Time during the summer months and changing them back again in the fall. the general idea is that this allows us all to make better use of natural daylight: moving the clocks forward one hour in the spring grants us more daylight during summer evenings, while moving clocks back one hour in the fall grants us more daylight during winter mornings.
I see how all this works. So in the fall we get more daylight in the morning so we can see what we're doing when it comes to shoveling snow or using our snow blowers.
Or taking our kids to school will be much better on the eyes because of more daylight during the winter months.
So remember to set all our clocks back one hour before bedtime. You would not believe how many sticky notes I have to leave all over the house just to make sure I don't miss any clocks. And I also put a sticky note in the car as a reminder.
Here's a trivia question for you:
