Fall back 2018

Get ready for an extra hour of sleep this weekend as Daylight Saving Time officially comes to an end.

The clocks will roll back one hour this weekend at 2 a.m., November 4, 2018.

The annual change comes in the middle of the night, but most people usually set their clocks back before heading to bed Saturday night.

It's also a good time to replace batteries in warning devices such as smoke detectors.

The time change is not observed by Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.

The best I can give you is a fake smile and dead eyes.

It’s one thing not to want something; it’s another to be told you can’t have it.

This is also an opportune time to make a shift in your sleeping schedule if you want. You can sleep the same number of hours and get up an hour earlier than you were. That way your body does not "lose" any sleep and it should adjust to an early wake-up time.

I will like the morning commute in daylight, but it means most evening trips will be in the dark when traffic congestion is greater. December through February will equal morning and evening darkness so I'll enjoy the early light while it lasts.

We didn't even get to feel the effects of the extra hour of sleep...it was Disney half marathon and our volunteer report time was 3:15 AM. It was fun, though. :D
