Time change this weekend: Get ready to ‘fall back’ 1 hour as Daylight Saving Time ends

Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, November 5.  The switch signals the start of dark afternoons.

Most computers and cell phones now change automatically, but you will still need to adjust your watch, microwave and most likely your car.  It is also a good time to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Daylight Saving Time has been practiced off and on in the United States since 1918.  Daylight Saving Time starts the 2nd Sunday of March and ends the first Sunday of November.  Hawaii and Arizona do not observe Daylight Saving Time so no springing forward or falling back for them!  U.S. territories such as American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands do not make the change, either.

We will move the clocks again on March 11, 2018, springing forward an hour.
