Back to Standard Time Tonight...Gain An Hour of Sleep

The sleep you lost this past spring you'll get back tonight.  Make sure to change the clocks behind one hour before going to bed tonight.  Standard time (non DLS) officially starts at 2am Sunday.  If you don't make adjustments, you'll be too early to everything on Sunday.  Also, while you're at it, remember to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. 

Also keep in mind, it'll be a little lighter in the morning for the school kids.  But the sun will set before 5pm.  So, many of  you won't be seeing a lot of light during the day if you have a normal 9 to 5 job. 

Interesting Exceptions in the U.S. about DLS in General:

In the U.S., Hawaii and most of Arizona do not follow DLS.

The U.S. territories of Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and American Samoa also do not observe DLS.

What countries follow Daylight Saving Time?

About 70 countries around the world observe DLS.

Many countries near the equator do not adjust their clocks for daylight saving.

Neither China nor Japan observe DLS.

Some countries refer to \"Daylight Saving Time\" as \"Summer Time.\"
