This Sunday, November 6th at 2am, you'll need to set your clock back one hour as Daylight Savings Time comes to an end and we resume Standard Time. So, before going to bed Saturday, remember to set those clocks back an hour (your computers and phones should do so automatically) and enjoy the "extra" hour of sleep that you'll be getting.
Daylight Savings Time was officially adopted in the United States in 1918. Only 2 states, Indiana and Arizona (except Navajo Nation lands) do not use Daylight Savings Time. There are several arguments for DST, in particular, energy savings and not having children go to school in the dark, are two strong arguments. As stated above, 2 states felt it was not necessary and did not adopt it, but in the rest of the country, it is the norm.
So now, for the next 6 months, we revert back to Standard Time. So enjoy the extra sleep Sunday morning!
