It’s that time of year again. No, not the holidays, although those are fast approaching. It’s time to change the clocks back, as we say goodbye to daylight saving time. At 2 a.m. Sunday (Nov. 5), the clocks “fall back” one hour and we return to standard time — “standard” being the time we use for only four months of the year.
The time change means we get an extra hour of sleep this weekend. If you’re an early riser and dislike waking up in the dark, you’ll be pleased to see much brighter mornings. But with daylight in short supply this time of year, setting the clocks back will rob us of even more evening light. Get ready for sunsets in the 5 o’clock hour and trekking home from work in the dark.
