Daylight Savings Time Ends This Weekend
Twice a year we move our clocks to conform to the Daylights Savings hoopla. Well its is once again time to change our clocks so that we aren't late for anything!
In the Spring, we move our clocks up an hour so that we can take advantage of all the sunlight we can. It was a concept created by Ben Franklin. We notice that the sun goes down a lot later than in the winter months.
In Fall, the days become shorter so we "fall" back an hour. So this Sunday at 2:00 a.m., we move our clocks back one hour. This means that we get an extra hour of sleep, but it also means that the sun will go down earlier.
There are several places that do not observe daylight savings time like Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands. Since the Federal Government doesn't require U.S. States and Territories to observe it, these residents don't have to worry about it.
I usually set my clocks back on Saturday before I go to bed so that I'm not late for anything on Sunday morning. Enjoy your extra hour this weekend!
