Fall back - daylight savings time ends this weekend

Thursday, November 1, 2012


Spring ahead - fall back.

Eight months of daylight savings time ends this Sunday at 2am. Set your clocks back an hour before you go to bed Saturday night.

You can either stay up for it, or set your clocks an hour back before you go to bed on Saturday night.

The fire department reminds you to change the batteries in your smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detectors. 

The cloud cover is already making the evenings very dark. We have few sidewalks and uneven coverage from street lights.

It will be very dark in the mornings. Drivers should watch for teenagers headed for school bus stops and be aware that at many bus stops the students are actually standing on the street. 

People going for jogs and walking their dogs after work should think about what drivers can see of them and their dogs in the dark and rain.

Wear reflective clothing, put reflectors on your dog and your dog's leash. And keep your dog close to you on streets with no sidewalks.

Won't it be light in the morning now? And darker earlier in the evening?

Yes, lighter in the morning. Glad I'm not the only one who initially gets that confused!
