When Do We Turn The Clocks Back?
When does Daylight Savings Time end this year? It feels like we need to fall back.
We'll get that extra hour of sleep at 2:00 AM, Sunday, November 6TH. When we turn the clocks back and return to local standard time, the sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour earlier than the day before.
Changing the clocks is always a good time to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Fire safety officials recommend changing those batteries at least once a year and replacing the detectors every ten years, even if they’re hard-wired.
Does Daylight-Saving Time affect us? It's certainly easier to gain an hour of sleep versus losing an hour of sleep. Most of the studies show adverse effects in the spring when we lose an hour of sleep. The studies show an increased risk of traffic accidents, workplace accidents, heart attacks, and suicide.
