Turn Your Clocks Back One Hour On Saturday Night

This Sunday morning at 2:00 a.m. will be the beginning of standard time. What that means is you need to set your clocks back one hour. You can stay up until 2:00 a.m. and set your clock to 1:00 a.m., but I think most of us will do it before we go to bed on Saturday night. There’s also website with the exact time. Most computers, cell phones and electronic devices with clocks in them automatically change.

We may be losing hours of daylight as it is getting dark earlier, but we’ll gain an hour of sleep on Saturday night. At least we like to think that we are.

Arizona (with the exception of the Navajo Indian Reservation) and Hawaii are the only states that don’t observe the time change. They’re always on standard time.

If you’re keeping track, on the second Sunday in March, we set our clocks ahead one hour at 2:00 a.m. standard time. It then becomes 3:00 a.m. daylight savings time. This brings us to where we are. This will be the first Sunday in November – clocks back one hour. Just in case you’re wondering, congress established these dates in the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

Did you ever wish that we didn’t have to do this anymore? I do, although it’s a good way to remember to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
