Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 5th 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 7:22 a.m. on Saturday and will set at 5:36 p.m.; while rising at 6:23 a.m. on Sunday and setting at 4:35 p.m.
Before you go to bed on Saturday night, remember to change your clocks and also take this opportunity to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
As of February 20, 2004; all new residential construction requires AC-powered hard-wired, interconnected smoke alarms with battery back up in the following areas: inside each bedroom, outside each bedroom area, on each habitable level including basements and at the bottom of the basement stairs.
