Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 6th at 2 a.m., which means you gain an hour of sleep this weekend!

Look for lighter mornings, but for it to get darker much earlier in the evening.  For example, the sun will rise at 7:23 a.m. on Saturday and set at 5:35 p.m.; while rising at 6:24 a.m. on Sunday and setting at 4:33 p.m.

and at the bottom of the basement stairs.
