Hey, I know it's Halloween and everyone will be busy having fun; but don't forget tonight is the night that we go off daylight savings time, so remember to set your clocks back one hour and enjoy the extra sleep!!

Cheers! M2

I set my alarm to get up at 2 AM to turn the clocks back. I was told the time changes at 2 AM, so i want to do it right.

This is my favorite day of the year - an extra hour of sleep!

I also LOVE that it gets lighter "earlier" when we make this change. I'm not a fan of the "spring forward".

Me too. I hate when that happens. I can never get back to sleep afterwards and I end up feeling groggy for days.

Thanks for the reminder, I had completely forgotten about this.

I found it interesting on a recent road trip to CA to discover that not even all states practice DST. AZ has the same time all year round.
