Spring forward & Fall back – the time changes this Sunday November 2nd

Daylight Saving Time (DST) is coming to an end. This means most Americans will be setting their clocks back one hour and returning to Standard Time on Sunday, November 2, 2008 at 2:00 a.m. If it seems like we’re a little later than usual in setting back the clocks, you’re right. Daylight Saving Time was actually extended by an entire month this year as a result of the Energy Policy Act, enacted in 2005.

Even if you are in the parts of the country that do not turn back the clock, this is also a great time to perform important tasks around the house, including:

  • Resetting automatic lights and sprinklers to standard time operation.
  • Checking fire extinguishers and testing smoke detectors.
  • Restocking first-aid kits and emergency supplies.
  • Changing important passwords and personal identification numbers (PINs).
  • Rotating tires and inspecting the spare.
