Time travels backwards at 2 a.m. Sunday

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS time ends Sunday at 2  a.m.

Just in case you haven’t been reminded a dozen times already this week, daylight savings time ends at  2 a.m. on Sunday.

That means that time is about to “fall back” and be reset at l a.m. You can get up and change all your clocks at 2 a.m. (which is “really” 1 a.m.) or perform this chore when you get up Sunday morning.

The “fall back” means you get an “extra hour” of sleep, but also that it will get dark earlier. Many fire officials and departments also suggest that you use this opportunity to replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

By Sunday morning you will be back on “standard time.” On March 11, 2018 you get to “spring forward” which will give you more hours of light, but cost you one hour of repose.
