Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend. Remember to set your clocks back before going to bed on Saturday night. The time changes officially at 2AM but most people set their clocks back before going to bed rather than staying up till 2 AM.
How do you remember whether to set your clocks forward or back? I always remember the phrase “Spring Forward, Fall Back”.
By setting our clocks back an hour we will see more daylight in the mornings, which is great if you are an early bird, but we will also see less daylight in the evenings.
Also remember that this is a good time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends changing your batteries because “Smoke alarms save lives, prevent injuries, and minimize property damage by enabling residents to detect fires early in their development. The risk of dying from fires in homes without smoke alarms is twice as high as in homes that have working smoke alarms.”
