Don’t Forget to “Fall Back” This Weekend

Don’t be surprised if you feel a little more refreshed on Sunday morning, as the annual time change means an extra hour of sleep. Daylight Saving Time (DST), which started on March 14, comes to an end on Nov. 7 at 2:00 a.m.

People are advised to move their clocks back before they go to bed on Saturday evening, though cell phones, most computers, and many other electronic devices will automatically make the change Sunday morning.

While many people will welcome the extra bit of sleep, the end of DST will also mean that it gets dark earlier each night, increasing your chances of heading home from work next week with your headlights on.

Several state lawmakers have filed legislation in recent years to move the state to Daylight Saving Time throughout the entire year, though none of the bills have been made into law yet. If one of the proposals were to pass, however, the state would still need Congressional approval to make the change official.
